THE show at Huddersfield Art Gallery on the art and life of Patrick Procktor has been extended until December 1.

Visitors will have an extra three weeks to see the show which has had fantastic feedback from local people and national press.

This exhibition is the first museum show of Patrick Procktor’s work since his death nine years ago and considers the work of this somewhat neglected artist.

Procktor was part of a bohemian circle in 1960s and 1970s London that included his great friends artist David Hockney and fashion designer Ossie Clark.

The show focuses on paintings and works on paper from all stages of Procktor's career.

It examines pictorial, stylistic and technical developments within a broader artistic and social context. The show accompanies Ian Massey's 2010 publication Patrick Procktor: Art and Life.

The show is part of ROTOR, a partnership programme Huddersfield Art Gallery and the University of Huddersfield.
