Art and Craft festival

Members of the Halifax Art Society contributed art works and supported the event at the Piece Hall last weekend. In particular, quite a few sunflower pictures were sold and all the proceeds from those sales went to Overgate Hospice.

The whole event went really well and it was helped by the fine weather, which meant there were a lot of visitors to the Piece Hall. The Caygill Rooms were a super venue and the whole exhibition looked very good. 

 The high quality of the entries was much appreciated.


Feeling inspired

Halifax Art Society members are often inspired by the artists who visit to demonstrate their skills and after a visit by pastel artist Sue Smith, Lynne Hickin was inspired to use her pastels.


You may recognise the subject as’ Another Place’ by Anthony Gormley at Crosby Beach which we visited in September 2016.

“INSPIRATION is the title of our next exhibition at the Hebden Bridge Visitor Centre. and runs from 1st – 30th September.  The centre is open daily 10:00-17:00.
