Artist of the Month

Artist of the Month

Andrew Denton  

We at Festival Place not only take pride in hosting That Gallery in one of our units, but have decided to choose an artist of the month to boost young talent in the area. You can view and buy the work from the artist below at That Gallery, which is due to reopen on the upper level at the end of the month. 

Andy Denton  joined THAT Gallery in 2015 and we proudly exhibited his mixed media canvases that explored movement and disability. Through Andy's own job as a carer at the Audley Wood Resource Centre we were able to host a micro exhibition of works by service users of the Audley Wood Resource Centre.

Over the last year most of Andy's time has been taken up writing , illustrating and self publishing his very first childrens' book "Hold your horses". The book uses characterisation to explore popularly used idioms such as "Busy as a bee" and "Elephant never forgets".

We are all so excited that the book launch is planned for next month and that copies will be going on sale in THAT Gallery and on Amazon.
