Art in the Library
An inspiring exhibition of portraits by Broughton artist Clayton Langford will
be on display at the upstairs gallery in Buckley Library throughout October.
This is the fifth in the series of exhibitions, Art in the Library – Lliw yn y
Llyfrgell, which aims to support local artists, some of which have never
exhibited before, by giving them a platform to showcase their work to the
public. Throughout the year the exhibition programme at Flintshire’s Libraries
will include paintings by Angie Hoopert, Emma-Jayne Holmes and Clayton
Langford, drawings by Scott Bongo’s and photography by Ceridwen Barkley.
Clayton says about his work: “I am a multi media artist from Broughton,
Flintshire. I enjoy exploring and working with a variety of different mediums
including graphite pencil, ink, acrylic and watercolour paint. A portrait
artist first and foremost, I gain inspiration through my passion for and love
of music from a variety of genres.”
Councillor Chris Bithell, Cabinet Member for Education, said:
I am proud that Flintshire County Councils Arts, Culture and Events team and
our Libraries service are continuing to support our local talent - showcasing
their work and supporting our artists as businesses.”
A private viewing of Clayton’s exhibition will take place at 5.30pm on Thursday
1 October and his work will be on display throughout October.
