Geoff Leathley has been painting and sketching the local area for over 30 years. This exhibition showcases a new set of paintings of Pontefract and Castleford. Taking inspiration from a great range of subjects including Pontefract Castle, churches, the canal and Riverside 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”.
