THE work of three local artists has gone on sale at Huddersfield Tourist Information Centre.
Original works by Matthew Evans, limited edition prints by Brian Halton and prints by Andrew Jenkin will add to the work of Tony Haigh, whose pictures are already stocked by the Albion Street centre.
Staff had appealed to local artists to offer their work for sale because of a demand from visitors wanting to take home a souvenir of the area. What better way to remember their visit than through a piece of local art?
Matthew Evans has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both locally and internationally, including the Europastel exhibition in Italy and Russia.
Brian Halton, who works in pastel, is a former art teacher whose home and studio are near Emley.
He was born in County Durham and after teaching art and design up to A-level standard for a number of years he now paints full time. His work is varied both in style and subject matter, from landscapes to detailed portraits.
Andrew Jenkin, though from Crewe in Cheshire, has lived in the Holme Valley for most of his life.
He began painting nine years ago at evening classes run by artist Linda Pettican at Armitage Bridge.
He has also long been encouraged by Honley artist Vera Waddington, who introduced him to Huddersfield Art Society, where he is now secretary.
Andrew works from his studio in a 19th-century textile mill near Huddersfield and produces greetings cards, bookmarks and prints from his watercolours, many of which depict well-known buildings and landmarks around the north of England.
These new works all feature local views and familiar landmarks.
