An exhibition at a Brighouse gallery showcases the work of two well regarded local artists highlighting their very different styles.
The exhibition underlines the contrast between Paul Talbot Greaves’ subtle yet evocative landscapes and the detailed layering of Catherine McGrath’s deeply industrial paintings.
The exhibition opened last weekend and runs for three weeks at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse.
On show are 50 new pieces from these two artists.
Paul Talbot-Greaves is a landscape painter and writer based in Halifax.
He was elected as a companion of the International Guild of Artists in 1996 and two years later, became an Associate of the British Watercolour Society in 1998.
Paul was made a Professional Associate of the Society for All Artists in 1997 and in 2002 was elected as President of the Halifax Art Society.
Hanging alongside Paul’s work in Brighouse is that of Catherine McGrath.
“I work in acrylics, on paper or on canvas,” she said.
“I like to work on a textured background, using either collage or a textured medium to ‘roughen’ the surface, giving immediate depth to the images made.
“I use palette knives to apply the paint and love the rather random effect, the unpredictability of how the paints appear on the uneven surface.
The gallery is in Bradford Road in Brighouse.
