GIFTS of artwork have brought Huddersfield Art Gallery some new works.
They include pieces by Chris Gollon, Trevor Bell and Huddersfield-born Marion Rhodes, who died in 1998.
Kirklees Council's principal visual arts officer, Robert Hall, said it was unusual for the gallery to get so many pieces given at once.
He added: "We do like to keep the collection ticking over, but we don't really have any funds.
"So we rely on the donations of other people and sponsorship to buy new pieces. The collection must not remain static, but grow."
The new acquisitions will be on show at the gallery on Princess Alexandra Walk in November.
A special exhibition of Marion Rhodes' works is planned for 2006.
Mr Hall said: "The Marion Rhodes pieces are very interesting, because there is something from every period of her life. They include some views of Huddersfield and the Colne Valley.
"These are particularly interesting, because they show buildings and we can compare the landscape to today's.
"Marion Rhodes was a teacher of art for most of her life, although she did exhibit on a regular basis at the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy and at the Paris Salon."
The Marion Rhodes collection was handed over by her nephew, John Denham.
The Chris Gollon piece was given by former Holmfirth man Peter Beaumont, who now lives in the USA.
A number of works were also given in memory of Jonathan Drake, the former head of Kirklees cultural services who died in 2003.
These will be displayed at the gallery in November, before being seen in Dewsbury Library and Batley Art Gallery next year.
