Castle Hill inspires Dukes "Composite" Exhibition

Bonnie Craig and Jenny McCabe looking at some of their work
Imagery from Lancaster's Castle Hill has inspired the latest exhibition at The Dukes gallery.

"Composite" is a collaborative exhibition by Lancaster-based printmakers, Jenny McCabe and Bonnie Craig.

They’ve used a range of techniques to create their work including drawing, collage, rubbings and photography to produce a series of experimental screen prints reflecting Lancaster’s historic Castle Hill.

Although both use screen printing to create their work, Jennie avoids colour preferring to draw wildlife with scribbly ink lines while Bonnie uses bright colours and abstract geometric shapes to create pattern.

In the future, Jenny and Bonnie hope to recreate their exhibition in different places including a site specific display on Castle Hill itself.

In the meantime, they have been commissioned by Lancaster Business Improvement District to work with schools to create shop window displays for Light Up Lancaster in November.

• Composite can be viewed until 2nd October during normal Dukes opening hours. If you are making a special trip to see it, call the Box Office as sometimes the gallery is used for other activities. For more information, ring the Box Office on 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org
