Natural Eye

Ice Matt Gartside 22" x 33"

If you want an excuse for a trip to Clitheroe to take in the tearooms, charity shops and quirky independent retailers, you must go to see Matt’s exhibition at Longitude Gallery in Clitheroe. It is called ‘Natural Eye’ and Matt has 7 important, large and best of all beautiful pieces in it. Its a really interesting exhibition comprising of 4 photographers each with a different approach. It is comparatively rare for a British gallery to promote photography so well done to Andy and Sarah at Longitude.

It opened on Saturday 10th and is on throughout January and February. Matt does all his own printing and has even made the frames using upcycled wood which harmonise beautifully with the subject matter. They are glued together with blood, sweat and tears and are retailing at £295. There are smaller mounted prints in the galleries browser from £50. Here are some photos from the opening today.
