Glossop Station artist back by popular demand

The Station Waiting Room Art Gallery at Derbyshire’s Glossop Station is playing host to a new exhibition by a local artist.

Back by popular demand is Chris Taylor, who is showcasing nine paintings in the current display.

Chris, whose work has featured regularly at the station in recent years, worked in animation for 40 years and now specialises in calligraphy with a focus on animal portraits.

Neil Williams, chair of the Friends of Glossop Station (FoGS), said: “Chris made quite an impact with his first display as he specialises in calligraphy. He draws inspiration for his work from nature, animals, and poetry. Chris has also included some hand lettering in his paintings too. If you look closely, you see the designs are like a mosaic of words.”

The exhibition can be viewed daily when the station booking office is open – from around 7am to 6.30pm weekdays, and 10am until 5pm on Sundays.

Since its inception in 2015 the gallery has hosted over 30 displays by local artists, and FoGS thanks Northern for its ongoing support of this venture.
