Globe Studios , Toll Bar, Bacup

I visited these studios at the weekend and met some of the great artists who work there. I loved their work, it really resonated with me especially that of Stan Cropper and Michael Kelly. It was so good to talk about art and life with them. They were kind enough to look at my portfolio on the Sunday and said they would come and visit my studio too. They are authentic and visionary artists. I’d love to show with them, we would just have to find a venue. I do believe that will┬ácome if it is meant to be. I only got to see their studios by chance after talking to printmaker Alan Birch at his studio down the road from Globe Arts. Here’s some of my photos from the visit. Here’s a pic of Michael talking with a friend. Shots of Michael’s work on this post. I’ll share Stan’s on my next one.
