Well known Todmorden artist David Wynne will be holding an exhibition to celebrate the historic re-opening of the rail junction known as Todmorden Curve on Sunday May 17.

The exhibition named “Todmorden Curves” is being held to mark the first time since 1972 that rail passengers will be able to travel directly to Burnley from Todmorden.

The exhibition will be located at Platform One Gallery in Todmorden Railway station and will feature charcoal drawings of local Todmorden people in all their curvy splendour.

A number of local characters have posed for the large scale drawings and the charcoal itself was home-made in Todmorden.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Sunday May 10 to Sunday May 31.

David has been involved in extensive work around the community and is the creator of the Lucky Dog statue that sits in Centre Vale Park, Todmorden.

He hopes this new exhibition will bring luck and good fortune to all travellers on the Todmorden Curve.
