A solo exhibition by fine art photographer and Peak District Artisans’ member Michéla Griffith. Her detailed and often abstract photographic images of water from the River Dove in the Peak District National Park are often mistaken for paintings. They reflect underlying geology, the character of the day, the legacy of rain and the energy of the river. Form, features, colour and texture are all part of the images, but they are foremost about the interplay of light and water while the shutter remains open.

This second solo exhibition follows and builds on the well-received “Moments of Confluence: A River’s Song“ held at the Joe Cornish Galleries in Northallerton during June 2015. As well as additional images of water it will show how these dynamic studies are starting to inform Michela’s image-making on land.

The exhibition opens with a preview on Saturday 12 September between 2-4pm. There will also be two further opportunities to Meet the Artist on Saturday 10 October and Saturday 31 October between 2-4pm.

Gallery Opening Hours are: Tuesday to Friday: 9.30am to 5.30pm; Saturday: 9.30am to 5pm. Also open Sundays 13, 20 and 27 September: 10.30am to 5pm.
