The arts and crafts within and around The Forest of Bowland are as unique, diverse and beautiful as the wildlife, landscape, habitats and eco-systems, which the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) represents and cares for.
2014 saw the 50th Anniversary of The Forest of Bowland being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, providing us with the inspiration for this unique opportunity to showcase the artistic talent found within and inspired by this stunning landscape.
An exhibition portraying the beauty of The Forest of Bowland will open at The Platform Gallery in Clitheroe from 24th January to 11th April and the Artroom Gallery in Garstang from 29th January to 12th May.
