Blog Week 47
Another week closer to Christmas and more and more pieces of artwork are coming and going from the gallery. This week we have been all over the country delivering paintings and also viewing new works. Highlights of this week have included a trip to London to see two of our fabulous regular collectors which allowed the opportunity to view some more original paintings from the one and only L S Lowry. We continue to source Lowry’s for collectors far and wide so do let us know if you are looking for works by Lowry or any of the Northern artists. Watch this space for new acquisitions.
New in the Gallery
Lots of new arrivals have come into the gallery this week starting with a breathtaking original painting by our local art sensation Barry Hilton. Regulars will be familiar with Barry’s paintings and the latest addition is reminiscent of previous works but in a new colour palette and with a fabulous moonscape sky.
As collectors will know, in addition to Barry Hilton’s contemporary landscapes we also regularly source his popular harbour and galleon paintings. This week we have acquired a superb example, slightly larger than his typical harbour paintings but still full of the atmosphere for which he has become known.
Along with Barry’s popular paintings, two new originals are also on show from Mary Shaw. Well known for her delicate floral paintings, the two new meadow paintings have a fabulous new dimension including the beautiful little Fieldmouse into each composition.
From the delicate florals of a contemporary painter we move on to one of our better known deceased artists with a new work by the late James Lawrence Isherwood. Well known for his blue period paintings, this lovely little seascape is a fabulous example.
On the sculpture and glassware front, we have acquired new bronzes from Brian Arthur and some amazing new creations from Lalique. The Flying Pelicans from Brian Arthur are a must for anybody looking for a statement piece and the new Champs Elysees Vase is absolutely stunning. Watch out for new works from both Lalique and Brian Arthur over the next week as additional pieces will be arriving soon.
On a final but very important note, many of you will have got to know Katy over the past few years in the gallery and it is with sadness that this week will be her last week with us at the gallery. As with all our team, Katy has become a key part of the Hepplestone art family and we are sure that you have all enjoyed being looked after by her and growing your collections with her. The Rozanne Bell exhibition on Thursday (30th November) will be her last night with us so we do hope you can come along and say your goodbyes. It will also be a great chance to welcome three new members of the team, Beth, Jill and Ruth, all of whom are keen to meet everybody and each of whom have something new and unique to bring. See you then!
