When Manchester-born artist Anne Aspinall used to visit her aunt in Harlech as a child, she didn't realise that one day she would become widely known for her oil paintings of the coastal North Wales landscape. After 50 years as an artist, working across different media and subject matters, Anne is continually drawn back to this beautiful part of the country to capture the majesty of the landscape and scenery.
A Welsh Connection, a new exhibition launching at Contemporary Six on May 12, celebrates the strong affinity that people from the North West have with North Wales. The exhibition of thirty-five paintings capturing coastlines and harbours illustrates Anne’s skill in depicting reflections, light, and movement.
Contemporary Six owner Alex Reuben said: ‘Anne is one of the most technically gifted painters in the North West, and this exhibition is an opportunity to see many of her beautiful works. Her landscapes appeal to all kinds of art-lovers, and they will make you love the Welsh coast and countryside as much as she does’.
A Welsh Connection takes place at Contemporary Six, located in Central Manchester, on Princess Street. It begins with a preview afternoon on Saturday May 12, from 1–5pm, in which Anne will be available to chat with visitors. The exhibition will run until May 31.
