"A Man of Consequences" in the Arkwright Society's Collection
Alke's Cromford Mills-inspired painting, "A Man of Consequences", is now in the permanent collection of the Arkwright Society, thanks to a gift by a private buyer who purchased the painting at the launch of the Tangled Yarns exhibition at Cromford Mills last autumn. The painting is on display in the lobby of Cromford Mill's brand new World Heritage Gateway Centre.
