Local Schools:
Sea of Ink 
Exhibition16 June - 6 July 

future exhibition


In response to our Dave Pearson: Return to Byzantium exhibition, local schools have been engaging with Lancashire printmaker Alan Birch to create new works of art. Following Dave Pearson's death, Alan was commissioned to restore the artists' etching plates and reprint his extraordinary work based on English folk tales. 


Alan has been commissioned by The Turnpike to explore connections to Dave Pearson's work through workshops and CPD sessions for local teachers and pupils. The resulting work is displayed in the Sea of Ink exhibition, on display in The Turnpike's studio.
