Nine local artists are presenting a Winter Collection, showing at Brook Street Gallery in Todmorden Market Hall until January 31.
It showcases a variety of artwork by the artists, who are as follows.
Jack Jarman enjoyed painting as a schoolboy but didn’t take it up until after retiring at 67, when he joined Todmorden Art Group. He loves to paint landscapes,(English and Oriental) in watercolours.
Barbara Daveron has always liked painting and drawing landscapes and subjects with a botanical theme.
Music took up most of Peter Abraham’s life but he still carried on painting and drawing landscapes and animals. Most recently started painting in oil.
Christine Chapman spontaneously builds up layer upon layer to create some vibrant, abstract impressionist paintings.
Painting in oils and watercolours, Stella Hill is constantly looking at colour form and texture captured in her work inspired by nature, landscapes and all things organic.
Mike Acton is inspired by the moorland landscape around Calderdale, using oils and acrylics to build up layer upon layer over a rough textured ground giving his paintings life and soul.
Bob Follen creates quirky artworks using recycled materials and painting ‘One Word missing’ personality portraits which are becoming increasingly sort after pieces.
Harry Ward spent his working life in engineering and so metal is a prefered medium to work with. He uses the interrelation of form and colour, looking at the value of colour in his sculptures.
Christine Nichol, who with the help of Calderdale Council’s market team created the space for local artists to showcase their work in the market hall, loves to paint beyond the reality
of the subject on canvas and slate.
Brook Street Gallery will be open 10am - 4pm, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday each week except Christmas Day.
