A NEW series of art exhibitions has been launched – in a Huddersfield cafe.
Based in Brian Jackson House, Café Jaxx is a community café open to building users and to the public.
The café will display and sell artwork with a percentage of the profits going to the Yorkshire Childrens Centre who manage the venue.
The first exhibition features work by local fine art landscape photographer Neil Fawcett, who is displaying photographs showing a range of scenery from the Yorkshire region, including the upland moorland wilderness of the Pennines, low lying woodland ravines and the rolling rugged Yorkshire coast.
Caroline Ellis, services manager of Brian Jackson House, said: “We are very excited to add this artistic element to the Café which will showcase the fantastic talent we have in the local area and will hopefully attract some new visitors to Brian Jackson House and Café Jaxx.”
The exhibition has been arranged by Pam Lonsdale, a local arts events organiser and will run until March 4.
Café Jaxx is run with the help of volunteers from local colleges and Kirklees Day Opportunities, to help on a day to day basis and also to gain work experience for themselves.
The café is based within Brian Jackson House, New North Parade, Huddersfield.
