Artist Eddie Davies is popping over the hill from Barrowford to stage an exhibition of his art work at Platform One Gallery at Todmorden Railway Station.

Eddie describes the exhibition, which runs from November 6 to 30, as “Half and Half” - there are 36 paintings, half of them detailing the industrial north west and the the other half more abstract mountain scenes.

“Those scenes are partly based on theIce Field Parkway in Canada, where I took a lot of photographs,” he explained.

All his work is done using acrylic paints on canvas.

Eddie said: “I’m a taxi driver by trade but I have been painting for about 15 years. The first ten of those was reallyme learning how to paint and finding my own style. I now have a studio in Barrowford,” he said.

The gallery is open RThursdays to Sundays each week.
