This week we launched Art Exchange, a fundraiser to support the DEC Appeal to help with the humanitarian effort in Ukraine.

During March donate £5 and create your own artwork in the gallery (of anything you want) which will go straight into the exhibition! If you don't want to create a picture yourself, you can buy any of the artworks on display for only £5. The idea is that the exhibition will continually change throughout the month, with new artworks coming and (hopefully) going.

There will be a mixture of artworks on display from professional and amateur artists, young and old. We encourage everyone to have a go and be part of the exhibition!

100% of the money raised will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal.

Our card of the day has to be this amazing linocut print by Ethel Spowers, 'Wet Afternoon'. The original artwork was printed from four blocks on thin ivory laid tisse. Ethel was an Australian artist associated with the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London in the 1930s.
Her linocuts attracted critical attention for their bold, simplified forms, rhythmic sense of movement, distinctive use of colour and humorous observation of everyday life, particularly the world of children.

Even dull days like today can inspire artists... these beautiful paintings by Matt Turner capture the ever-changing weather, vast open landscape or a long-forgotten building nestled within it. Matt's paintings have often been compared to works by Peter Brook, the renowned Pennine artist. For Matt, he was a huge inspiration, the way he documented this unique landscape so honestly in every painting he did.

You can a selection of Matt's paintings in our Autumn Exhibition, alongside some fantastic original artwork and gifts from Yorkshire-based artists and makers.

On a sunny day in May I started my project with Kevin Threlfall Art by cutting a few tiles. They are now available at Enjoy Art in Marsden as part of a larger collection of work including bowls and vases. . . . . #marsden #marsdenvillage #yorkshire #shoplocal #huddersfield #ceramics #independentartist #pottery
At the start of lockdown I began an Arts Council England supported project with Kevin Threlfall Art Kevin runs the art studio and gallery in Marsden and paints magnificent abstracted landscapes that capture the magnitude and ever-changing moods of our Pennine surroundings. I have made a series of ceramic pieces that aim to reflect and complement Kevin's work. These are now available at Enjoy Art in the village.
