The latest exhibition at Clitheroe Castle Museum will showcase the work of Cedric Charleuf, the winner of the Ribble Valley prize in the 2017 Ribble Valley Open Art Exhibition.
A selection of Cedric’s paintings is currently on display until Wednesday 2 January 2019 in the Steward’s Gallery.
The exhibition, entitled Le Corps, L’âme et L’esprit will feature Cedric’s winning traditional oil on board artwork Maat, Goddess of Harmony, Justice and Truth.
The French-born artist has exhibited in Paris, London and New York, and has now lived in the Ribble Valley for a number of years.
The annual Ribble Valley Open exhibition is an opportunity for local amateur and professional artists to submit work on a given theme.
County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: “I’m sure visitors will be impressed by the high quality of Cedric’s work.
“Cedric was such a worthy winner of the Ribble Valley prize. It is great to be able to exhibit the work of such a talented artist.
“Our annual Open Art exhibition really does give local artists a chance to show their skill and creativity.”
Cedric added: “I firmly believe that art can be powerful and beautiful, evocative and mesmerising, and doesn’t have to be conventional.
“This is the first time that I have entered this exhibition and it is great to have won the Ribble Valley prize. I was so pleased to win it and I’m thrilled to have this opportunity of a solo exhibition showcasing my paintings.”
The Steward’s Gallery is open daily from 11.00am to 4pm.
From Monday 5 November until Wednesday 2 January 2019 the museum will be closed on Wednesday and Thursdays.
Admission to the exhibition within the Steward’s Gallery part of Clitheroe Castle is free.
