A show of hands for new Drumcroon exhibit
Wednesday 8th June, 2011

Artist Peter Randall-Page has exhibited in numerous collections worldwide including Japan, Germany, USA and Australia. In 2006 he was awarded the Marsh award for public sculpture.

And on Friday 17 June, the Drumcroon Gallery will welcome him to Wigan at the launch of his brand new exhibition entitled ‘Showing his Hand’.

Randall-Page will open the show at 6.30pm with an illustrated talk in the gallery’s Roocroft room. His work will be on display there from 13 June to 21 October.

The presentation is expected to last an hour, after which Randall-Page will be available to discuss his work informally in the gallery.

Sarah Coulson, Assistant Director at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park where some of his work is displayed, says that Randall-Page is fascinated by “the naturally occurring pattern and the dynamic tension between order and chaos”.

Gallery Education Manager Anne-Marie Quinn says: “We are delighted to have Peter Randall Page exhibit his work at Drumcroon.

"The exhibition features works on paper as well as in clay, stone, bronze and iron and explores the artist's vision of the natural world. It's worth a visit for anyone with an interest in contemporary art. It may also be of interest to geologists and mathematicians!"
