This exhibition is in response to an artist in residence by artist A.C. Telfer at Farfield Mill last year.
The artist writes:
With so many inspiring things both in and outside the mill, it was difficult to know where to start. I was drawn to the river as it links both the natural outside world and the man made inner one. No river, no mill!
My paintings are about a sense of place and what was happening in the moment. I am sharing my experience of being there in that time and place. I use acrylic inks and paints, building up in translucent and textural layers. Although I use photography as a sketchbook, ultimately I work from my memory. I find that thinking about what it felt to be there and the pictures in my mind help me paint in a more evocative way.
I hope you enjoy this exhibition and that it inspires you to climb the stile by the bridge and wander along the riverbanks.

A.C. Telfer is an artist turned primary school teacher who then turned back again into an artist. She paints anything that catches her eye and interests her. At the moment that tends to be things she spots whilst walking the dog, hence the somewhat bucolic nature of her current pictures. A.C. Telfer hails from Essex but live up on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border.
