Self-taught artist to show work in Whalley
3:19pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in News
A SELF-taught artist is showcasing his latest work, including a work featuring Whalley Viaduct in the Ribble Valley, until Saturday.
Former press photographer Malcolm Croft was forced to retire in 2000 after being hit by a car while out cycling.
He was shortlisted in 2010 for the prestigious John Moores prize five years after starting to paint. The exhibition, titled ‘Made in England’, opened at the Art Decor Gallery in Whalley on Friday, September 20.
Mr Croft said: “The Whalley Viaduct is such an impressive structure that I just had to paint it.
“I could not resist it and it was a joy to do.”
