Get to know our LAT Artists: Bronwyn Oldham

We are so excited that Create98 is an official venue in the Leigh Art Trail this year. Plus we have not one, but two, fantastic artists exhibiting their work here. Here is a little bit about photographer, Bronwyn Oldham…

Bronwyn played a major role in organising the Leigh Art Trail for over 5 years, before stepping down as Chairperson in 2017 to focus on her own work and concentrate on her academic studies. With 2019 being Bronwyn’s 10th year in the Trail, she has decided to look back at the work she has created over the years, culminating in the form of a mini-retrospective of work which will be published in a book especially to mark the anniversary. This will be launched at the ‘Artist’s Talk’, here at Create 98 on Sunday 9th June, where Bronwyn will talk about how she has got to the current stage in her artistic journey and talk a bit about her future project regarding women and the menopause.

Leigh Art Trail will run from Saturday 8th June to Saturday 15th June.
Private View: Friday 7th June 7-9pm
Meet the Artists: Sunday 9th June 2-4pm
Late night opening: Thursday 13th June until 9pm
