The Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse has this week opened a new art exhibition showcasing a wide range of contemporary artists.

Headlining the show is gallery favourite, Sue Nichol, who is showing ten new works depicting coastal scenes and moorland landscapes.

Gallery owner Steven Lord said: “Her evocative depictions of Staithes harbour and Seaham lighthouse battered by a ferocious storm, are amazing pieces and you have to see them to appreciate her talent. This is an artist at the top of her game.”

Sue, who is from Sheffield, draws great inspiration from the coast.

“I find constant inspiration in the sea in all its moods and it is a subject to which I am invariably drawn, striving always to capture its movement and strength, which I find both fascinating and frightening,” she said.

Newcastle artist Darren Mundy is showing for the first time outside the North East.

Zimbabwean artist Rozanne Bell, now British based, has a highly decorative style which is always in great demand.

Halifax artist AJ Callan is showing his new cat series, while Leeds based artist Sheryl Roberts is another newcomer to the gallery.

Matt Turner, who is an artist from Brighouse, makes his gallery debut with local moorland landscapes.

New work by Brighouse artist Neville Fleetwood is also on show. The exhibition will run until October 23 and is free to enter.
