Saturday 27th April - Monday 1st July 2013 - Peter Walker
International artist Peter Walker ARBS will be exhibiting at the Granary Art Gallery throughout May and June.
An artist who works in both realist and abstract styles, many of Peter's remarkable sculptural pieces are geometric in appearance, whilst exploring the movement and mechanics of people and creatures such as horses and birds.
Peter primarily uses materials such as bronze and corten - a steel alloy with a deep orange 'rust' appearance - to create his sculptures, a selection of which will be on display.
In addition, there will also be three large George Stubbs paintings on display which have been loaned to Weston Park from a private collection.
