In this, our third year, we are delighted to announce, our annual art exhibition, which will continue to be a key part of the festival, running throughout August. We are now welcoming local artists to help support our organisation, with donations of artwork, working on personal interpretations to align with this year’s theme – REVOLUTION.
Held at Nelsons Wine Bar, we have grown year on year, with last year’s exhibits, supporting our LGBT+ Heroes theme. Submissions raised the bar, both in quality and also gained significant, further publicity and funds.
The Revolution ‘theme’, will continue to coordinate our involvement with other local organisations across Hebden Bridge, building up to the festival, which last year included being part of the Arts Festival ‘tree trail’ and creating a competition to reward local primary school children for their creations.
We believe, Revolution offers an equally, soul-stirring and strong theme, which will galvanise those artistic souls amongst you, to help make 2018’s exhibition another thought-provoking and visually inspiring talking point throughout the festival and beyond.
All forms of artwork will be considered, whether it be sculpture (not too big please), ceramic, 3D, Textile, Acrylic, oil, pencil and ink. However, we would ask that artists who kindly donate their work, are willing to donate all proceeds generated by the sale to our not-for-profit organisation.
Our Exhibition Opening Event will take place at Nelson’s Wine Bar in Hebden Bridge on There will be live music from local performer Magdalen.
***STOP PRESS*** We are proud to feature an original piece by renowned local artist Kate Lycett, specifically created for Happy Valley Pride. This wonderful artwork will be auctioned alongside other items and winning bids will be revealed at the Pink Picnic on Sunday. Further announcements will be made on social media.
Closing Date Extended to Friday 13th July
