The Blackburn Hamlet Library in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of photo-based artwork and paintings by Lynne Alsford. In these works, Lynne explores the colour and form of the orchid in paint or uses the transformative processes of photoshopping to re‑imagine the orchid, manipulated to varying degrees or set in interesting and unexpected backgrounds, sometimes holding the flowers captive inside bubbles.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support local artists in their community as well as engaging with the Blackburn Library.
