HOME-MADE chocolate cake and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal are among the inspirations for two local artists whose work will be exhibited at the Ace Centre, Nelson.

The exhibition, “Melt – Concealed Forms”, of work by Beverley Chapelhow and Keith Parkinson, will open on Saturday and run until Wednesday, March 2nd.

Describing her work, Beverley said: “My main body of work stems from a childhood love of home-made chocolate cake that has stayed with me into adulthood.

“This cake coupled with chocolate, cream and other food stuffs is inspirational as I conjure up images, tastes and feelings.”

Keith said: “My recent paintings and sculptures are representations of the place I live, by the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.

“I create both abstract and representational work exploring light, colour and form, expressing my fascination with the interplay between these elements, and motifs, atmosphere and the sense of place.”

Entry to the exhibition is free and opening hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
