Wainsgate Exhibition

Wainsgate Baptist Church in Old Town, Hebden Bridge was the remarkable setting last weekend for the launch of a stunning exhibition of local artwork. The group of artists who all live or work in the village of Old Town comprised of Sheila Tilmouth, Alison Duddle, Weston Hammond, Nola Hayhurst, Alice Hutt, Yvonne Stubbs, Kate Boyce and AJ Wilkinson.

A spokesperson for the group said that “We were all extremely pleased to be asked to exhibit in such a beautiful and interesting old building. It is a building of historical significance located in an inspirational landscape, and it is fast becoming a creative venue of some significance”. The Launch was a great success, attracting many visitors, including a party that arrived on a specially organised ‘Open Studio bus’. Some visitors combined the viewing of the Exhibition with their attendance at the fascinating performance of the Baroque musical group‘Arioso’ who played at the Chapel on Saturday afternoon.

The Exhibition entitled Wainsgate Artists continues this weekend 10th/11th July 11am to 5pm

Hey Hannah,
Well what d ya know - I started working on them again today at long last. Went to photograph the one I did for a commission and it got me going again. Was going to call in and see you - do you still have any of those plastic hooky things to spare? X K
