Brisbane Taylor | 03 March - 01 April 2018

Open Evening: Friday 02 March 7 - 9 pm

Order and chaos are intrinsic parts of life, one cannot exist without the other, each one informing the other. Carbon is a core element required for the existence of life. Life cannot exist without it. Brisbane explores these components of life through the process of drawing and painting, using traditional materials in non-traditional ways.

Lorna Mollart | 03 - 24 February 2018

Lorna's work explores mythology, storytelling and literature. She is interested in transmogrification and how forms can change from human to animal or object. Currently reading Ovid’s writings of metamorphosis. In particular the story of Arachne, here she transforms from a woman into a giant spider.

Ben Snowden | 06 - 27 January 2018

Ben's work explores the relationships and ideas between subject and emotion, combining visceral energy with experience through the medium of paint. Inspired by the human form and his native Yorkshire Landscape, he uses the language of abstraction to create work that emphasises on mood and expression to determine the overall feeling of the paintings. Ben predominantly work with enamel and household paints on materials such as paper, board, card, textiles and wood that he finds in everyday life. His main focus is to create work that evokes the senses and communicates a positive and constructive view of the world.

As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning | Bill Parker | 02 September - 01 October 2017

These abstract paintings are reveries and meditations on the landscape. They are intended to reflect changing light, the colours, the seasons. They are developed from direct daily observation and experience.

Bill Parker is an artist living and working in Haworth.

A Small Selection | Daniel Metcalfe | 04 February - 26 March 2017

Exhibited are a small selection of works completed in 2015/2016. Some are similar to each other some are quite different. This is important. Overall stylistic differences in these pieces are bound together by the same desire, to arrive at the perfect solution or as Richard Diebenkorn suggested 'rightness'.

My work is often informed by nature (landscapes and such) but not always strictly adhered to. Although I have noticed a tendency to order the space within the painting in a fairly traditional way.

Opening Event, Friday 03 February, 7 - 9pm

Woodland Landscapes | William Gall | 06 February - 27 March 2016

William has been painting Woodland Landscapes in both oils and acrylics for the last two years in a medium or large format and when invited to show work at the South Square Restaurant it was an opportunity to provide a large number of small acrylics on canvas with a common colour range and style of painting. This has resulted in both individual paintings and as a group it shows the contrasts and atmosphere of the woodlands that interest him the most.

Augury | Morwenna Catt | 05 December 2015 - 31 January 2016

An exhibition of drawings, paintings and small sculptural works.

“Lately I have been making ‘Shamanic’ creatures. They are very much a product of my ‘other’ life in Norway, where I spend most of my time in the studio on the North facing slope of a mountain where we are surrounded by trees, birds and animals. In shamanic or magical ritual, augury is a method of foretelling the future by observing bird and animal behaviour."

Views from the Pennine way | Bob Thompson | 03 October - 01 November 2015

This work originates from a series of walks Thompson undertook this year between Holme Moss and WithinsHill. The walks incorporated at some point a stretch of the Pennine Way, from Black Hill to Withins Hill.
