Art at Lancashire Archives

Some of the impressive artwork produced by Lancashire Adult Learning’s staff and students will be on display in Preston this month.


County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, Lancashire County Council’s cabinet member for environment, planning and cultural services, said: “This event gives visitors an opportunity to see the great variety of work that has been produced.

“The exhibition showcases a real breadth of talent and features a range of artwork, including drawings, paintings and ceramics.

“I hope visitors will enjoy coming along to the Record Office to see this exhibition. We’ve hosted exhibitions here before and received some very positive feedback. With historic records going back 900 years there is plenty to provide inspiration.”

The free exhibition will be held at Lancashire Archives, on Bow Lane, from July 7-9 between 10am and 4pm.

Amanda Melton, Principal of LAL, said: “We are looking forward to seeing this fantastic three-day exhibition opened to the public in July. This is a creative collaboration between Lancashire Adult Learning’s teachers and learners – which celebrates everyone as an artist. Well done to everyone involved.

“I encourage all members of the local community to visit the event and see the wealth of talent on your doorstep.”

LAL provides courses for adults who are job-seeking or just brushing up some of their skills.

Education and training is currently provided for 22,000 people, delivered in over 120 community based venues throughout the county.
