Meet artist Chas Jacobs this weekend at Ashton Memorial

Lancaster artist Chas Jacobs has an exhibition at the Ashton Memorial this weekend (Saturday 30th November - 1st December) and will be on hand to talk about his work and sign the back of any works sold.

Original paintings, canvases, limited edition prints and cards will be available.

Chas draws his inspiration from the towns and landscapes of the North West of England; a unique and beautiful area including Morecambe Bay, the Forest of Bowland and the nearby Lake District in Cumbria as well as from his holidays in Devon, particularly Dartmouth, where his interest in boats, the sea and harbours are reflected in his work. 

He's been producing images which reflect the region for over 15 years. Having always lived in the area, he  manages to add a very local feel to the scenes he produces.

Strong primary colours, fluffy white clouds and often multi-coloured balloons make the paintings instantly recognisable and fun. If you look carefully, you will sometimes find his springer spaniel, Rags, in the paintings.
