Art: Peter Brook exhibition at Harrison Lord Gallery, Brighouse
Oct 29 2010 by Val Javin, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
HE’S the town’s most famous artist and his work will go on show in Brighouse.
An exhibition of 100 paintings by Peter Brook will run at the Harrison Lord Gallery from Saturday, November 6, for three weeks.
It features 100 signed prints and some rare originals of the late artist’s work.
Those on show include Huddersfield Town scarecrow, Being Watched and Woods in the Autumn – as well as many of Peter’s renowned rural, wintery and industrial scenes.
Peter Brook was born in nearby Scholes and died last November aged 83.
Steven Lord, owner of the galley, said “He left a wonderful legacy in his paintings and I’m sure that Peter would want us to continue enjoying his work.”
And it comes as some of the artist’s work, owned by Hollywood filmstar James Mason, goes under the hammer at Bonhams in Chester next month.
But to view it more locally, the exhibition will launch at 11am on Saturday with a performance from Brighouse singer songwriter Roger Davies, who composed a song after being inspired by the artist.
The exhibition will be on show at the Bradford Road galley for three weeks – Monday to Saturday 9am until 5pm. Entrance is free.
