Peter Brook exhibition opening 11am Saturday 6th November

Peter Brook Exhibition

It is now nearly a year since the sad passing of the much loved Brighouse artist Peter Brook. He was a very well known figure in Brighouse, nearly every day popping into the Merrie England Cafe for a coffee and to see his friends. Many people used to stop Peter in the street for a chat and to “put the world to rights”. On the way home he would pop into the gallery to see what we were up to and discuss his latest work. He is sadly missed.
Steven Lord, owner of the Harrison Lord Galley in Brighouse, said “he left a wonderful legacy in his paintings and I’m sure that Peter would want us to continue enjoying his work. It is therefore as a celebration his great achievements as an artist that we are holding this new exhibition.”
Many people have enthusiastically collected his work over the years including famous film and TV stars. These include James Mason, Hannah Gordon, Tommy Steele, Alan Ladd, and Timothy Dalton among many others. It will be exciting for his many fans to see this large collection of signed prints and originals.
The exhibition will probably be the last chance to purchase signed prints since these are now becoming increasingly rare and with the originals rapidly increasing in value they may well be a good investment. A number of very rare original paintings will also be on sale.
To open the show at 11am on Saturday 6th November the Harrison Lord Gallery have invited local singer Roger Davies to perform his popular Peter Brook song and the owner of the Merrie England Cafe Keith Hanselman, who is himself a highly respected artist, will talk about his memories of Peter.
Over 100 prints will be on show as well as some rare original paintings.
Also available will be Peter Brook calendars, mugs and books, all of which make great stocking fillers.
