Opposites Attract features works by two very different Barnsley-bred artists: watercolour artist Ashley Jackson and sculptor Graham Ibbeson.

The collection is on display at Cusworth Hall, a beautifully renovated Grade 1 listed house perched in green splendour above its lake. Ashley Jackson and Graham Ibbeson “Opposites Attract” Exhibition is a unique opportunity to view the dynamic watercolour paintings of Ashley Jackson and the humour and expression captured in the sculptures of Graham Ibbeson.

Friends for many years, the artists have chosen to collaborate on an exhibition.

It is the perfect opportunity to view such a diverse collection of the similarities and differences of the two artists. Sharing the same passion for Yorkshire and its people and capturing elements of such difference - Jackson the Yorkshire landscape and atmospheric skies and Ibbeson the often comical humour of facial expressions to the serious nature of Morecombe and Wise.
