Our new exhibition “By The Seaside” is now open and we’re really excited! It’s a first for the Harrison Lord Gallery to hold a seaside themed show and our artists have really risen to the challenge of interpreting our wonderful coastline in so many ways. From the impressionistic beach scenes themes by Malcolm Ludvigsen to the delightful collages of Gilly Mound there’s something to appeal to all tastes.
From our all-embracing sea to our country’s beautiful coastline and bustling harbours, the exhibition takes an artist’s view of our favourite holiday destinations such as Whitby, Staithes and Scarborough.
The Gallery is pleased to be welcoming back popular artists Steve McLoughlin and Sue Nichol and excited to introduce some great new artists to the gallery; Julia Crossland and her charming illustrations, Rayford’s colourful and quirky take on popular seaside locations and Rob Marrison’s dramatic wave scenes.
Around 15 established and emerging artists have been invited to exhibit their seaside themed work in the gallery, resulting in a phenomenal range of styles and techniques from traditional to contemporary.
Steven Lord, gallery owner “With this summer being such a washout it’s a pleasure to bring a bit of the sun and holiday spirit to Brighouse with this new selection of artworks. After looking round the exhibition you’ll almost be able to smell the sea and be ready for an ice cream!”
It will be a superb opportunity for everyone to enjoy and purchase some great British art. The gallery’s hugely popular interest free credit scheme will also be available (subject to conditions).
