The retrospective exhibition for Michael Bennett is now live. http://www.castlegatehouse.co.uk/exhibition-details.php?EID=31  A fully illustrated biographical catalogue is available upon request, and a pdf copy can be viewed via the link http://www.castlegatehouse.co.uk/exhibition_images/Catalogue-V1-final06092013084746.pdf 

It's been wonderful working through Mike's journey, starting from 1950 and culminating in newly produced work. Mike is one of the most talented artists to emerge from Cumbria in the last century, or this, with his work, especially that from the 1960s, having been exhibited alongside the likes of Sheila Fell, Lucien Freud, David Hockney, Elizabeth Blackadder and Sandra Blow, to name but a few.

The exhibition will be available to see hung in it's entirety from Saturday 21st September, with Mike in attendance at a reception from 12-2pm (gallery open as usual 10-5). However, all works are available to purchase from today, so if there's something you're interested in, do let us know.

This will prove to be a major retrospective exhibition by a major northern talent. We're very much looking forward to it.
