Trent Art Gallery is pleased to present only the 2nd solo exhibition of Maurice Wade’s work in over 40 years. It is remarkable that the 21 works on show all come from the same Collection that has been amassed by Andy McCluskey, best known as the founding member, lead singer and bass guitarist of the electronic band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD). 

We have been incredibly fortunate to be able to work alongside such a committed and passionate collector of Maurice Wade and we are privileged to bring this significant body of paintings to a wider audience via the Silent Landscapes exhibition and its accompanying book Maurice Wade, Silent Landscapes, The Andy McCluskey Collection

 The is on pre-sale now at £25 can be purchased via our website at 

It is very much a fine art publication, with beautiful design, finish and wonderful images. Andy has been closely involved with the look and feel of the book and we are all very proud of its quality. 

We also have a deluxe box set that includes a Book, 21 A5 Postcards of all of Andy’s Wade paintings, a 16 booklet of drawings by the artist and an Exhibition poster. (I’ve attached images of these). This is limited to an edition of 100 and each one will come with a personalised dedication from Andy.  This can be found here:  It might be worth mentioning to fans that this is selling quickly, so if they would like one I wouldn’t hang around for too long. 

A few words from Andy’s foreword to the book … 

I am blessed to have these paintings at my personal disposal, but I am constantly reminded of the teenage Andy whose love of art began with library books displaying tiny photographic reproductions that barely captured the true majesty of often monumental paintings. He was only to discover the thrall of viewing art in person once he began visiting the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. Inspirational, educational and free of charge! This is one of the reasons why I wished for these Maurice Wade paintings to be on general view. Collecting is a selfish addiction, so sharing my proclivity assuages some of the guilt and allows others to personally interact with art that would otherwise be inaccessible.  

Anyone wishing to purchase the book or box set can do so via our website or mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if they have any problems or questions.

A booking signing .is planned for February and we will get those details to you soon.
