Dermod Ruddock- The Colour Of Our Land: 27 & 28 November

Returning artist Dermod in his own words, “I’m delighted to be able, once again, to show a collection of my most recent paintings in ‘The Mix’ from 26-28 November. I’ve really enjoyed my forays into using expressionist colours in patterns of light and shade, especially in the local landscape of the Ribble Valley. It’s been very enjoyable to meet visitors in recent months and discuss how I work…why not come down to The Platform Gallery and join the conversation?” link to facebook event
