Artist Oxana Poberejnaia who is exhibiting her work in Todmorden.

With art from Water colour paintings to still life, the exhibition will be running throughout the month with the works available to purchase with a local flavour.

Oxana Poberejnaia came to the UK from Russia, where she studied at an Arts Evening School for Adults.

She settled in Todmorden in Autumn 2008 and since then has taken an active part in community and creative projects in the area, such as the first Alternatiba festival to be held in the UK.

Oxana reads her poetry at spoken word events around Calderdale and leads a frame drum band Incidentals, which performs locally and recently raised money for the flood fund.

Oxana has exhibited her works at local venues, including Todmorden Town Hall where she experiments with styles and techniques, painting both realist and abstract artwork.

The exhibition will feature an Irish and a Russian landscape, as well as old and new paintings by the artist.

Oxana specialise in painting flowers and local landscapes, which will all be available on the day.

The exhibition is free of charge and will be unveiled on Sunday May 1. Todmorden Information Centre will be open from Monday to Saturday from 10.00am to 4.00pm and Sundays 10.45 am to 2.30pm.
