Jean-Georges Simon - The English Works

As part of the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival the Artsmill present 'The English Works' bringing together paintings and drawings by artist Jean-Georges Simon (1894-1968).

Artsmill

Born in Hungry, travelled in Europe, particularly Paris, settling in London and ending up in Harrogate, Yorkshire. He split the last 30 years of his life between Yorkshire, Chelsea and Paris, drawing, painting and gathering ideas. His work centres on the human form, townscape and still life but predominantly people. Always a humanist, Simon's work managed to achieve a calm tenderness and harmony, often with humour, both after and during one of the most turbulent periods in history. His lively characterful drawings made on the street and in pubs are a vibrant record of this period in Yorkshire and London.

An Associate of Modigliani and Picasso, Simon's paintings reveal a deeply poetic mind, alert to problems, both artistic and human, of the first half of the century and are a fascinating and original contribution to the achievements of his generation.

Some art works are for sale and the exhibition runs from Wednesday 22nd June to Sunday 17th July at the David Wright Gallery, Artsmill, Linden Mill, Linden Road, Hebden Bridge, HX7 7DP. Opening times are from 11am to 4pm Wednesday to Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday) www.artsmill.org  or artsmill@lindenmill.co.uk
Tel : 01422 647072    or  07836336138

Hebden Bridge Partnership AGM

Our Town 2016

Anyone who has been to the Partnership's AGM ("Hebden Bridge: Our Town") will know that this is a special occasion. Last year, no less than 39 local organisations and groups took advantage of the invitation to say a few short words about their activities and future plans. In fact, we had so many groups that we had to shrink the traditional three minute slots to two-and-a-half minutes.

We hope that you will make sure that any organisations you are involved with take up our offer of a slot – and that you will help swell the numbers by being with us in person yourself. The key information to give you at this stage is the date: Monday October 24th, with a 7pm start. We have booked the Town Hall's Waterfront Hall for the occasion.
