Longitude Gallery – Clitheroe’s newest Art Gallery – is now open to the public.

The first exhibition in the gallery’s annual programme saw paintings by Victor Alan Herbert, Todd White, Michael Bentley and Peter Joyce, complemented perfectly by stunning sculptural pieces by Clare Bigger.

Prior to the official opening, guests enjoyed Champagne and Canapés at a Private View which was attended by more than 150 people throughout the evening. It proved a great success, with strong sales and enthusiastic comments on the high calibre of the work presented.

The Longitude Art Gallery is based in Lee Carter House – which also houses Cheesie Tchaikovsky and Urban Sheep – to be found at the top of Moor Lane next to the United Reformed Church or up the steps from the Lowergate Car Park.

The Gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday 10 am till 4 pm and at other times by appointment. For more details visit: www.thelongitudegallery.co.uk
