There was a genuine buzz in the air as artists rubbed shoulders with clients at the opening of the Winter Season Exhibition at Water Street Gallery, Todmorden. Fifty seven artists have contributed to making this blockbuster of a show of quality work.

Regular gallery artists are showing with selected artists, many local and exhibiting at the outset of their careers. Owner Rosemary Holcroft has selected 450 small paintings, sculpture, prints and mixed media reflecting the current art trends of pluralism, where fixed boundaries expand to include many art forms, and there is too, a place here for more traditional works, with many high calibre canvas based artists working in oils and acrylics on show.

The show runs right though to the end of January 2014. The gallery is open from 9.30am to 5.30pm Mondays to Saturdays, and from 11am to 3pm on Sundays.
