Exhibition in Rossendale

Blue Unicorn


The Dave Pearson Trust is supporting the new partnership of arts organisations that have recently taken on the running of The Whitaker, Rossendale’s Art Gallery and Museum.

The Whitaker will be undergoing important changes over the next few months, with the idea to keep it’s essential identity as the collection of local history artefacts and Victorian wonders, while totally updating its feel by making it more family-friendly and approachable, capitalising on its position at the centre of Whitaker Park. This will include opening a cafe, holding more family events in and around the Museum, and a generally more relaxed approach – welcoming all sorts of groups to use the building for workshops, classes and meetings.

This will all take time, and we’re still in the process of negotiating these arrangements with Rossendale Council. In the meantime the new partnership has christened the upstairs gallery with an exhibition of a selection of Dave Pearson’s smaller ‘Bestiary’ oil paintings, plus a selection of his drawings.

The exhibition will run (weekend afternoons only) until 16th June 2013.
