On Saturday 18th May the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse West Yorkshire is welcoming 10 brand new artists to the gallery for its second annual ‘Fresh Faces’ exhibition. All the artists taking part in the exhibition have developed a credible following and are well established, although it is the first time any have exhibited at the Harrison Lord Gallery.
Paintings by artists such as Jan Jones – winner of ‘Not The Turner Prize’ – Helen Robinson, Bruce Lyons and Howard Levitt range from the figurative to abstract, from landscape to seascape and still life. Whilst artist Amy Charlesworth won 1st prize in the Bradford Open for her photo realistic style and distinct subject matter.
West Yorkshire based Hilary Barber is exhibiting a range of beautifully painted sheep portraits. Inspired by her own family of rare breed Greyface Dartmoors, her paintings evoke the character and charm of her flock.
The gallery is also exhibiting many mixed media pieces from artists such as Rachel Grant, Claire West and Julie Allen; where painting and printmaking are combined with layers of collage and embroidery.
Gallery owner Steven Lord spoke of the upcoming exhibition “The artists’ styles are varied and diverse and should make for an intriguing mixed exhibition. Last year ‘Fresh Faces’ was a great success, our regular customers really enjoyed seeing artists that they perhaps had not seen before and it is a great chance to perhaps find that next ‘great artist’”.
The exhibition will run for three weeks and is free to enter, for more information please visit www.harrisonlord.co.uk or call 01484 722462
