Lancaster Guardian cartoonist exhibits in the Park


Yes, we know that headline could be misleading. Got you here though, didn't it?

Paintings of local landmarks by Lancaster artist and Lancaster Guardian Jack Knight will be on display throughout June in the Pavilion Café in Williamson Park.

The exhibition features a number of original pieces and Giclee prints, including his most popular work, "Summer in the City".


As part of the exhibit, Jack has created a new piece, "Candy Castle", portraying  Lancaster Castle as an edible delight - a running theme with many of his paintings of the city's architectural heritage.

Originally from Liverpool, Jack moved to Lancaster in 2004 and has made it his home. A member of both the Ethical Small Trader's Association and the Chamber of Commerce, Jack enjoys being “hands on” in Lancaster and his paintings are often inspired by the history of the city.

• Jack’s “Paintings in the Park” exhibition runs until 29th June 2014
