New Exhibition at Redbrick Mill.

I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to stage a one man show in a pop-up gallery space at Redbrick Mill, Batley, where I also have my studio. I am showing around 50 paintings, many of which have never been exhibited before. All but one of the paintings is for sale. The gallery is adjacent to the main entrance to Redbrick and is accessed through the Calligaris store. The show will run until at least 21st August, possibly a little longer. For opening hours and directions please visit https://www.redbrickmill.co.uk/ . Hope you can come along and hope you enjoy the show. If you would like to come up to the studio when you visit please call or message me in advance and I will do my best to make sure I’m around – 07855 922616.

The Football Art Prize Exhibition.

The Football Art Prize Exhibition, which features two of my paintings, is now up and running at the Millenium Galleries, Sheffield. It will be there until 30th October and will then move on to the Sunderland Art Gallery. For opening times please visit https://www.museums-sheffield.org.uk/museums/millennium-gallery/exhibitions/the-football-art-prize 

The Football Art Prize is a new open exhibition opportunity for artists worldwide. It has been created to coincide with 2022 World cup year by Touchstones Rochdale, with generous support from Arts Council England, to celebrate art and football. Selectors include Sacha Craddock, Jo Cunningham, Mark Doyle, Kirstie Hamilton, footballer David James, artist Mark Wallinger, and Gordon Taylor OBE . The show gives artists the opportunity to showcase their work in a regional touring exhibition opening at Touchstones Rochdale in March 2022 and touring to Sheffield and Sunderland.

My paintings selected are, “Sunday morning” and “Changing rooms”.

            Sunday morning.



“Sunday morning” is set close to Auntie Audrey’s old house in Ravensthorpe. I have painted the garages many times, but in this one I included a football match being played in the fields behind. It reminds me very much of the fields we used to play on as kids, and how on Sunday mornings we had to leave the pitch so that blokes from local teams could play their matches.  I first exhibited this painting in the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize Exhibition at the Mall Galleries back in 2013.

            Changing rooms. 


“Changing rooms” is a very simple painting of the changing rooms at Marsden FC and is one of a series of paintings I did in Marsden back in 2017. A series of objects in the foreground are references to an incident which happened many years ago, not in Marsden I should add, involving a friend who happened to be a referee. I will say no more!

I’ve been trying to find details of the prize winners, but haven’t had any success yet. Results may eventually be posted on the Touchstones website - https://www.yourtrustrochdale.co.uk/exhibitions/the-football-art-prize/

If you get a chance, I hope you will visit the exhibition at one of the three participating venues, and 

I look forward to hearing what you think of it. Enjoy!
