This morning I unwrapped all the Toffee Town paintings and spread them around the studio. I’m very excited that this exhibition is going to launch at last. Obviously somewhat apprehensive that the plug could be pulled between now and Saturday! I really hope not. They are here and framed. The prints are done. The cards are on their way. NEVER have I been so prepared for an exhibition. Honestly – it’s a little unnerving…

I’ve had a couple of viewings today in my studio, and on Thursday they’ll be off to hang in The Yorkshire Gallery.

These are all paintings inspired by the beautiful architecture of Halifax. And Halifax, because of the Makintosh Factory, was once known as Toffee Town!

Now, because of Covid restrictions, we are unable to have a preview or grand launch with cake and bubbly as we ordinarily would. So the exhibition will just open as The Piece Hall opens at 10am. If you are interested in the paintings then please contact Paul at The Yorkshire Gallery. He is also offering some one to one appointments on Friday 25th September.

Prices and size details of the new paintings are available HERE. Please contat the Yorkshire Gallery to express your interest in the paintings if you unable to come to the gallery.

Please be aware that The Yorkshire Gallery, and the wider Piece Hall are limiting numbers and implementing one way systems through the shops and the walkways to keep everyone safe. Face masks and sanitiser – you know the drill! I shall be there (in my best face mask) to welcome people for the Friday appointments and the Saturday launch. I really hope to see some of you there!
