The work of 10 Grimsby based artists is featured in the first exhibition of 2011 at Barton upon Humber’s arts centre, The Ropewalk.

The exhibition, Divergence, which opens on Saturday (January 15) in the Artspace, contains a mix of styles from artists at the Abbey Walk Gallery in Grimsby town centre.

The Ropewalk’s Exhibition’ Officer, Richard Hatfield, said the exhibition, which runs until February 27 contained a mix of styles, mediums and artistic experience.

“Abbey Walk Gallery has only been open two years and this exhibition is a positive representation of the quality of work produced by Grimsby artists in a wide variety of work which includes sculpture, painting and original prints,” he added.

“To be invited to take the work of 10 of our own resident artists to exhibit at the Ropewalk is a great honour and one we are very much looking forward too,” said Gill Gibbon who along with Elaine Munson set up Abbey Walk which opened in December 2008.

Since the Gallery opened it has gained a reputation for exhibiting a wide variety of artistic media with its first major Exhibition Out of the Dark, held in September last year, attracting more than 20,000 visitors eager to see work original works of art by artists including Picasso, Dali, Matisse,  Banksy, Ronnie Wood, Andy Warhol and Chris Rhea which had been housed in private collections or hidden from view in storerooms and private galleries.
