Private View: 23 May 18.00 – 20.00

It’s all back to front, telling stories with pictures and making sculptures with words, but that is what you’ll find in Warrington from
May to July as the Halton-based group of artists Markmakers bring their latest exhibition to The Gallery at Bank Quay House on Sankey
Street, Warrington.

Over the past two years, artists from Markmakers have been reading and sharing stories, choosing authors and books that interest and inspire them before going back to their studios to create beautiful interpretations of the narratives that they have read.

One of the books, Mark Cocker’s Crow Country, the opening line from which the exhibition takes its title, features descriptions of nature and the natural environment.  It has stimulated artworks and research visits in the landscape of Warrington and the North West, resulting in many of the artists making work featuring Crows and their habitats.
