Bay Blue Art goes on display in the Williamson Park's Pavilion Café

Oyster Catchers by Steve Smith
‘Bay Blue’ is a new collection of images including photographs and paintings from around Morecambe Bay by local artist Steve Smith, now on display at the Pavilion Café in Lancaster's Williamson Park.

Steve has been making images that capture the variety and vitality of our beautiful local area and his work will be filling the Pavilion Café with pictures large and small for the next few weeks,  bringing the view of Morecambe Bay indoors.

Steve was born in Morecambe in 1957 and with a desire to capture the beauty and spirit of Morecambe Bay and its surrounding area, tries to express his insight and love of the area through his images.

“Lancaster and Morecambe may have changed but the bay is constant," says Steve. "The fresh cool air, the light from the wide open sky and the restless sand sea and rivers.”

All of the pictures are for sale together with matching handmade greeting cards that can be purchased from the Pavilion Gift Shop. 

The images will be on show until July.

Look out for the ‘little memories’ collection which will be regularly refreshed throughout the duration of the exhibition.
