Exhibitions

Members occasionally take part in exhibitions showing their paintings.  These may be in exhibitions organised by the society or in exhibitions organised by other organisations. Photographs of some of the entries are shown in the gallery section of this website. 

Details of other exhibitions where members are exhibiting their paintings will be announced as they become available.

 

The Brighouse Rest Centre

 

Members of the Society display their paintings in the Brighouse Rest Centre, the home of their weekly meeting, on a rota basis, giving each member an opportunity throughout the year to display and sell their work.

 

Southwood, Halifax

Members exhibit their paintings, which are for sale, on a rota basis at this venue. 

Brighouse Gala

Hipperholme and Lightcliffe Art Society has occupied a marquee in a prestigious position at the Brighouse Gala for many years.  Every member has the opportunity to display a number of their paintings and the occasion has proved an ideal showcase for attracting on-the-spot purchasers as well as repeat buyers who visit us specifically to add to their collection of original paintings. 

Bailiffe Bridge Community Centre

The art society held its first exhibition of paintings alongside serving home-made cakes and drinks on Saturday 2 April 2016.  This was so successful that it will become an annual event. 

Smith Art Gallery, Brighouse Library

Except for 2014, the Society has held an annual exhibition members’ paintings at the Smith Gallery, housed in the Brighouse Library.  It is hoped that this annual event will continue.

The Old White Beare, Norwood Green (2006 - 2010)

From 2006-2010, the art society had a constant exhibition of paintings by members.  Every 12 weeks a new challenge was given to paint a picture on a certain theme.  Commission from the sales and money from the entrance fee was given to Overgate Hospice, Elland.  The paintings were judged by staff from Overgate and prizes were awarded.  After displaying the paintings for 6 weeks, the artists exchanged the picture for another.  So there was a constant change of artwork for the customers to view.  Photographs of some of the paintings are shown in the gallery section.  As this has now come to an end, the Society is looking for new premises to continue the exhibitions.

All members of Hipperholme and Lightcliffe Art Society wish to express their grateful appreciation to the owners and staff of the Old White Beare for providing this opportunity to display their work and, in so doing, raise funds for the Overgate Hospice over the years.  Our grateful thanks also go to our members who have put in a lot of work organising these events:  John (Allingham) who started this in 2006 and ran it until Sheri (Drake) and Anne (Wade) took over in 2008.  Thank you to everyone.

Milry's Tea Rooms, Brighouse 

From 2009-2015, the art society had a constant exhibition of paintings by members. 

Artisan Fireplace Showroom, Brighouse - 17 October - 14 November 2009

The art society joined with members of the Brighouse Art Circle to mount an exhibition in this showroom.  Some 140 paintings were displayed over 3 floors.  The winning entry was selected by the owners of the company.
