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.
