Jack House Gallery is just over 2 months old and the quiet nostalgia of Ben Walker’s evocative paintings of childhood have now been on show for a couple of weeks or so. Conversations around Ben’s work have been of old family snapshots, memories of holidays and worn out Ladybird books though to some the paintings also suggest the darker undertones of the loneliness and bewilderment of wartime evacuees.
Jack House Gallery are having a mid-show ‘Re-View’ on Thursday 11th June 5pm-9pm to see some new paintings by Ben Walker as well as get a sneak preview of what’s coming up at the gallery in the near future.
