From tomorrow, Sunday, 16th March, there is an exhibition at the Mill Shop on Audlem Wharf for four weeks of original paintings by members of the Guild of Waterway Artists, with media including watercolour, oils and photography.
This is in addition to the display of work by local artists, including George Baker, the late Maureen Hinchliffe, and Audlem artist Sheila Webster. There is also a range of traditional painted canal ware. All works are for sale.
