    Amble Now: exhibition of new work by Luke McTaggart

    Location: The Old Storehouse, Amble Links Holiday Park

    Amble Now is an exhibition of new work by Amble artist Luke Mc Taggart, at The Old Storehouse, Amble Links Holiday Park. August 20 - 27. Preview evening 20 August 6-8pm. All welcome.

    Luke said “For this exhibition, which has been generously facilitated by the Amble Links Holiday Park, I want to confront what Amble means in the here and now. Not what it may have been or what it will become but the Amble of the present. Typically I have addressed my sense of place here by painting the landscape surrounding the town, land with the looming cloud of development hanging over it. Landscape that is ripe with inspiration. In some of the newer work I will show alongside these paintings I want to capture something of the real shift that is happening in the town now. A prime example is the harbour, it has become a radically different place to the Amble Harbour of five years ago, it is a meeting point between the old and new. I would appreciate anyone local taking the time to visit my exhibition as I feel that the people to whom the work can speak to most directly are the residents of this enigmatic town.”
