Review of Michael Acton at Studio 5 from 7 July 2012
For someone who visits the countryside so rarely, thank you. Mike's paintings really bring it to life for me and makes me want to visit Calderdale to see those beautiful scenes for myself. The colours are wonderful and anyone who is fortunate enough to find themselves with one of these paintings hanging on their wall can consider themselves very lucky indeed.
Review of Michael Acton at Studio 5 from 2 June 2012
A first class presentation of paintings, lovely to see such a variety of colours, capturing the beautiful Calderdale countryside. Love the David Blain portrait, which has captured his features perfectly. Will definitely be paying a visit to the Platform Gallery to see more of Mike's work.
