“The Face of Nantwich” exhibition has opened in the Your Space Gallery at Nantwich Museum, and runs until Saturday 14th April.
With works by local artist Cath Kelly, and featuring some well known local people, museum volunteers say it will be of interest to a wide range of visitors.
Cath Kelly was born in the Nantwich area and has lived locally all her life.
After years of raising a family and working in education, she finally found time to turn her attention to her artistic talents, in particular painting exquisite portraits.
The fact that she has not had a formal art training might have added to the unique way she has captured the personality of her subjects.
Using oil paint or specialist pencils, she has varied the style to suit each individual, to capture something more than a photograph could portray.
Entry to the exhibition is free. The featured portraits are not for sale but a limited number of commissions may be taken as Cath moves on to future collections of paintings – including equine and local wildlife for ceramic and giftware.
