Last chance to see world renowned artist’s exhibition in Cotswolds

Pamela June Crook, known professionally as P J Crook, is currently staging her latest solo exhibition at Trinity House in Broadway, which will finish on Monday 16 July.

Named 'Immortals, Men & Beasts' the exhibition shows PJ's unique ability to express her observations and scenes from everyday life, in an atmospheric yet narrative way.

PJ's work is held in some of the world's most prominent public and private collections across the world including London, France the United States, Japan and Estonia.

The exhibition includes various art works. Many are crowded with people, creatures and things that together live in a world of being different. Refusing to be cut off by their frames, the pictures crawl out into all three dimensions.

The pinnacle of the exhibition are four big pictures of gatherings that are social depictions of a slightly unsettling relationships between society and the natural world. 'On Track', 'The Swimming Pool' and 'The Supper' show scenes of high sociability at moments when human interaction has been frozen into stillness.

Steven Beale, director at Trinity House said: "We have worked with PJ at Trinity House since June 2017 and this exhibition seems the perfect way to celebrate this anniversary."

In 2016, her paintings were to be seen in Gloucester Museum and Art Gallery and she continues to be involved within the county with Star College and the Friends of the Wilson in Cheltenham.

She has acknowledged the importance of art education within what is now the University of Gloucestershire, and this connection prompted her to donate three large paintings to the University.
