Howard Nelson, Chief Operating Officer at Leeds Trinity University said:
“We are very proud to be a host venue for the Horsforth Walk of Art, and welcome five talented artists onto our campus. We are always pleased to support our local community in Horsforth and hope many people, who may not have visited our campus before, will enjoy the opportunity to visit the exhibition at Leeds Trinity.”
Lara Rule, organiser of the Horsforth Walk of Art, said: “Every educational establishment in Horsforth is now taking part in the Walk of Art, and we’re delighted to have Leeds Trinity on board as a new venue on the trail.”
The five artists showcasing their work at Leeds Trinity are:
• Vicky Jones – an artist inspired by colour and texture. Vicky has been painting and drawing for a number of years and feels her work is a modern interpretation of artists such as Monet and Turner.
• Sandra Mcgarr – her inspiration comes from the vivid colours of nature and the solid form of man-made structures. Sandra uses pencil, watercolour and acrylic. Visit her website;
• Louise Mortimer – initially a sculptor by training, Louise now focuses on drawings. Her inspiration comes from life cycles; the process of birth, growth, life and death. Visit her website; www.louise-mortimer.tumblr.com.
• Beatrice Myers – a photographer focusing on the innocence and vulnerability of flowers and animals, especially farm animals. Visit her website;
• Sarah Shannon – her work is her interpretation of the world; colourful, abstract, uplifting and achievable. Follow her on Instagram; www.instagram.com/sashannon14.
Free car parking is available at Leeds Trinity University throughout the Horsforth Walk of Art. Visitors are encouraged to park on campus and walk to the various venues across Horsforth.
