I frequently drive through Hebden Bridge but I rarely stop to wander or, if I do, I often have a grandchild in tow. So I haven't taken all that many photos, which is a pity as it's a town full of interest. I had agreed to look after my granddaughters and put them to bed one evening, in order that their parents could have a well-earned night out. On the way, I stopped in town to have a quick look in one of the local art galleries, Heart Gallery, which is housed in a former Baptist Chapel, on the main street through the town.
There was a new exhibition, 'Craggs and Fells', by Kate Lycett, one of my favourite local artists. (See HERE). She has produced some stunning new work, including a wonderful depiction of Halifax's newly restored Piece Hall. I'd love to own one of her paintings, which she often embellishes with subtle patches of gold leaf and gold thread. The originals are beyond my reach but I was wondering if I could justify a limited edition print... Hmm. I really enjoyed seeing the work (do click the link) and browsing the lovely arts and crafts in the rest of the gallery.
