What’s on at the Garstang Arts Centre – May 2017

May Art Exhibition

Our artist for May will be Bert Stenning and this will be his seventh exhibition at the Arts Centre. Bert attended art school before enlisting in the Royal Navy in 1959 and served for ten years in various parts of the world. He later joined the Police Force and served for a further 27 years in and around the Garstang area. Bert mainly works from photographs and takes commissions.
Some of his paintings may be viewed on his website – http://www.bertstenningart.co.uk. The exhibition will run from Tuesday 9th May to Thursday 1st June.”
