    Showcasing Calderdale Museums’ fashion and textile collections from ancient Egypt to modern day. Calderdale Museums has one of the best but little known textile collections in the country. There are 17,000 objects, collected from all over the world. The collection began when the museum first opened in 1887. It represents the influence of world textiles on local production as well as how local textiles have been exported around and influenced the world. The collection includes significant objects from Ancient Egypt, The Balkans, China, Japan and the Indian Subcontinent. A range of English embroidery, samplers, costume, court dress, military uniforms, pattern books from West Yorkshire manufacturers and the design archive of Crossley’s Carpets. It represents not just textiles but textile production from spindles to spinning wheels, cards, combs and looms. The new fashion gallery will tell both the story of the production and manufacture of textiles in the local area and how those textiles were then used. This new gallery replaces the 'For King and Country' exhibition on the top floor at Bankfield. 2019 will also see a range of related talks, tours and events. FREE admission.

    The Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse is opening a new show of paintings by Danny Abrahams on Saturday 18th May. Brighouse artist Danny Abrahams has established himself as one of the UK’s best-loved, most collectible artists and this is his first exhibition in his home town. Meet Danny in person at the opening between 1pm and 2pm. Danny's paintings are hugely popular so this is a great opportunity to see his latest work. Danny commented “Growing up in the eighties, I'm from a generation of kids that played out in the streets. It was a time of innocence, a carefree time filled with fun and adventure. So I use my imagination and fall into a world where summer holidays last forever and snowfalls are over the top of your wellies! Never stop dreaming!!” Art has now become the focal point of Danny's life. As a true Yorkshire man he is influenced by the local beauty of the northern landscape and has been inspired by his many travels around the region. Combining these images with memories of 'growing up' appeals to everyone with a soft spot for nostalgia. The magical sky is a powerful subject in his work. The overall beauty, emptiness, rawness and power of the everyday natural wonder that most of us take for granted, sets the backdrop for many of his romantic works. The exhibition is free to enter and runs for three weeks
