At the start of 2019 we are pleased to welcome a new artist, Chris Taylor, to the Station's Waiting Room Art Gallery. A graduate of Birmingham and then Liverpool Schools of Art, Chris worked in Animation as a career for forty years on a range of cartoon and puppet films for the BBC, ITV and other companies.
On retirement Chris, who now lives in Glossop, returned to his first love calligraphy and lettering which he produces from his Meadow Hill Studio in Stockport.
His subject matter includes images of wildlife as well as calligraphy collages frequently using bamboo pens and brushes in his work.
Chris has exhibited in various venues across the High Peak including Hayfield, New Mills and Buxton Art Gallery. He has also exhibited in Stockport Art Gallery and Museum. His work can now be viewed daily during booking office opening hours at Glossop Station and may be purchased. Contact Chris on 01457 857315.
