Ian R Crane has been instrumental in campaigning against Fracking in Preston where he was a sufficient thorn to halt the whole process.
Ian has been on the front lines fighting against corporate hegemony and Government corruption with his Alternative View seminars that have exploded in popularity within the last few years despite intense pressures to have the venues closed down.
Now Ian needs our help having endured several major surgeries for cancer that he never expected to survive, yet miraculously he has, perhaps by his own determined warrior nature or by the love of those who he inspires, or both.
Ian is seeking the path of non pharmaceutical treatment, which would be a certain death sentence so we owe it to Ian to help him in his hour of need to fund the treatment he wishes to pursue, again leading the way for others to see that there is always another way than presented to all.

We have made some exciting new changes to the layout of our studio gallery and have included a small tea room where you can (when restrictions permit) enjoy a beverage and a choice of cake with the best view of Ulverston overlooking the Hoad monument.
We wish to start things off again with a new exhibition of artists work during and featuring their experiences of the ‘lockdown’. If you would like to contribute a piece then please get in touch. We have not set a final date for the exhibition as of yet but it will be at some time in July. Update, the exhibition will begin as we open on Monday. It will be a rolling exhibition until the end of August.
Keep checking back here as things are changing rapidly and new information will be posted.
We look forward to seeing all of our friends and supporters soon. Thank you all.
Ulverston Art House is running evening workshops for artists looking to improve their artistic skills. From novice to expert you can join our growing community to advance and expand in our vibrant art space.
Mixed media Monday’s, from 7pm our resident artists Lynne Warburton and Adrian Gough take students on an enjoyable voyage of discovery, exploring many mediums and avenues. This course is proving to be extremely popular and runs in 10 week terms. email email@example.com
In April there will be the opportunity to join a life drawing group on Thursday evenings. Life drawings offer a unique chance of developing your drawing skills like no other method can. Those who do attend regular life drawing sessions tend to be the ones who become far more skilled as artists as they hone their visual observations into 2D draft. email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently running an exhibition for a local artist Wendy Steel. Who’s inspiration is ‘feelings’, she starts with a feeling and then paints with instinctual freedom. The resulting art work is of an expressionist abstract with familiarity in some detail and a pleasing colour palet.
We return this week to our own works as four resident artists, while also show casing local artists.
Our local artists for this exhibition includes Susan Bentley an amazing talent who captures wildlife with a charm and paints with a graceful elegance which is an absolute delight to see. Her works alone are well worth a visit.
Sheila Gayle is exhibiting her new series of paintings titled ‘Northern Nan’s’, which portray the intrinsic characteristics of three familiar ladies.
We have retained two significant paintings from Christopher Stones exhibition for a limited time to give people an opportunity to see seminal works of a local master. Truly an honour.
We are open 10am to 5pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Ulverston Art House opening night was a huge success. We were honoured to receive Mayor Sharon Webster sporting a Picasso dress for the occasion.
Thanks to the many people who turned up. Everyone who came offered tremendous support and appreciation for what we are aiming to achieve. The future looks amazing and the opportunities to unite artists as well as discover new artists is what we are all about.
