The talents of four local artists will be in the spotlight at an exhibition which opens in Royston town centre next week.
They’re aiming to put a little life into the cold days of winter with a show which runs through until March at Curwen’s Gallery in High Street.
The theme of the exhibition, which opens on Wednesday, January 14, is Life – both human and natural, with each artist working in an entirely different style and technique.
Yvonne Peace produces distinctive sculptures in wood and resin, unique in style and reflective of her Yorkshire roots.
They are of weathered and reclaimed wood, treated and hand carved to create a visual masterpiece.
Brenda Brown creates textile based works, often painting on silk and using a sewing machine to add texture and detail with a free motion stitch. Her subjects are strongly influenced by landscape and flora.
Stacey Leigh Ross is an experienced acrylic and mixed media artist who loves to paint landscapes, life stories, and women.

Her style is semi-abstract with an emphasis on capturing the energy and movement of her subject, influenced by both her Caribbean upbringing and her life in the UK.
And Anna Pye is an artist printmaker producing original hand pulled prints, mainly lino cutting, inspired by the countryside and wildlife. She enjoys combining lino cutting with screen printing and often hand colours her prints.
The exhibition will be open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, until Tuesday, March 10.
