An Evening with Peter Anderson – On Thursday 29th May, Peter Anderson discussed with an audience his exhibition and inspirations as well as answering questions and getting to know the community. We were delighted to house Peter’s extraordinary paintings over the Spring for all of the community to enjoy.
?“The paintings begin with an unknowing, searching for a meaning within the spoon splashes and brush strokes. Slowly an image forms and at a certain time I allow myself to become consciously involved in shaping its form” Peter Anderson.
