Stunning images from across the world will feature in a new exhibition by photographer Alan Clayden that opens at Erewash Museum’s Lally Gallery this Thursday 5 November.

Alan has been taking photos for more than 60 years and is passionate about the art form, believing strongly that photography transcends cultures, language and national identity – with all of us sharing a common bond of being able to enjoy an image.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “Alan has travelled extensively over the years and been presented with numerous awards and accolades.

“We are delighted to host this six-week exhibition to give everyone a chance to see some stunning and exquisite images. It is a must-see display that will be enjoyed by people of all ages – and particularly those with an interest in photography.”

The Alan Clayden exhibition will be on display until Friday 18 December.

Anyone travelling specifically to see this exhibition is advised to call in advance as due to building work at the museum the Lally Gallery is sometimes in use for school groups. Telephone 0115 907 1141.

Erewash Museum is situated in Ilkeston town centre, a short walk from the Market Place. Opening hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm. Admission is free.
