The Barnsley Artwalk 2013 (Thursday 27th/Friday 28th June 2013)

Next week I will have works featured in an Open Northern Young Artists exhibition, Redbrook, as part of the Barnsley artwalk 2013, the first of its kind (to my knowledge) in the borough to date. A (art)bus service will transport visitors between Redbrook and Barnsley town centre. For more information visit http://www.alternativebarnsley.com/

Below is a map and list of places featured on the artwalk, which I have taken from the Alternative Barnsley site

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
