Thu 20 Aug - Sat 7 Nov On Our Doorstep: Geoff Leathley Paintings
Sat 22 May - Sat 4 Jun The Travel Posters Of Charles Pears


Geoff Leathley is a local artist who has been painting and sketching the area for over thirty years. This exhibition showcases a new set of paintings of Pontefract and Castleford, all painted between June 2017 and June 2018. Taking inspiration from a great range of subjects including Pontefract Castle, the Buttercross in Pontefract town centre, churches, the local markets, the canal and Castleford's Queen's Mill, Geoff explains:

“The heart of both towns remains the market, so it is not surprising that here I found lots of subjects and without doubt the most challenging. I decided upon a straightforward style, without embellishments or exaggerations of form or colour. I found the whole project exciting and enjoyed every minute”.
