We are delighted to be able to confirm this week that we will be hosting a fantastic exhibition of new original paintings and collectable limited edition prints by Barry Hilton in February 2017.

Lancashire artist Barry Hilton has been one of our best selling artists for many years and the intense demand for his original paintings has made holding an exhibition very difficult.  We are thrilled to have secured a stunning collection paintings however so hope you can come along and appreciate his atmospheric landscape paintings.

This exhibition will run over the weekend of 25-26th February with a special preview evening on Thursday 23rd February.  If you would like to attend the preview, please contact the gallery at sales@hepplestonefineart.com for full details.

Some superb new paintings have arrived in the gallery this week including four beautiful new James Lawrence Isherwood pieces.  Isherwood’s paintings continue to sell quickly with three rare pieces selling again this week so if you would like to view these Northern art paintings, do not delay and contact the gallery asap.

On a less positive note, we have also seen a number of none genuine Isherwood paintings in the last few weeks brought into the gallery by unsuspecting unfortunate collectors.  In this environment, authenticity and provenance are increasingly important so do contact us before taking the plunge without well founded guidance.
