Gallery welcomes ‘Fresh Faces’

New artists - rather than old masters - will be on view as part of the ‘Fresh Faces’ exhibition at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse.

Ten new artists will have their work on show from Saturday, May 18 for three weeks.

Though they are all well-established, it is the first time any of them have exhibited at the Harrison Lord Gallery. They include Jan Jones - winner of the ‘Not the Turner Prize’ - Helen Robinson, Bruce Lyons and Howard Levitt, with work ranging from the figurative to the abstract, from landscapes to seascapes and still life.

Amy Charlesworth, who won first prize in the Bradford Open competition, is known for her distinctive subject matter and photo-realistic style while West Yorkshire artist Hilary Barber is exhibiting a range of sheep portraits, inspired by her own flock of Greyface Dartmoors.

The gallery is also exhibiting many mixed media pieces from Rachel Grant, Claire West and Julie Allen.

Gallery owner Steven Lord said: “The artists’ styles are varied and diverse and their work should make for an intriguing exhibition.

“Last year ‘Fresh Faces’ was a great success and our regular customers really enjoyed seeing artists they had perhaps not seen before. It is a great chanc e to perhaps find that next ‘great artist’.”

The ‘Fresh Faces’ exhibition will run until June 8 and will be followed by an exhibition of landscape paintings featuring Mark Sofilas and Neville Fleetwood.
