Running up to Christmas ... 22/11/2013
We’ve been very pleased to the response to the current displays of work at the Gallery, especially the Winter Prints exhibition, that runs to early January. These works vary in size and style and start from around £30 for an unframed original piece of art – original prints make a great Christmas present. If you haven’t had an opportunity to see what there is, then a visit to the Gallery is a rewarding experience. In addition to this, we have been taking delivery of new works by Romey Brough, Clare Haley and Mark Sofilas. Romey’s characteristic large fresh flower paintings are always a feast of colour, whilst Mark is following up the impact of his ‘Hockney’ paintings with three new works based on Hebden Bridge. Please see our website for images of these and also Clare’s latest large painting that needs no introduction from us. We are also lucky enough to have some new bronze pieces by Philip Hearsey that are an exciting development of his established pieces – again examples are on the website. We hope that we have whetted your appetite and that we shall see you soon at the Gallery.
Lots of new work 08/11/2013
We have been busy rehanging the top room at the gallery with our Winter Original Print Exhibition. It has already been much admired as we have a good mix of styles from our Northern printmakers. Our other exciting news is that we have a new sculptor, Pauline Parsons whose work can be seen online but as with all art should be viewed at the gallery – original, beautiful and thought provoking pieces. If that isn’t enough we also have another John S Prescott box with lots of mother of pearl! During the next couple of weeks we are expecting new paintings to arrive so the walls in the front of the gallery will be looking different too. We hope that you will be able to call in and see all our latest additions.
