    Halifax artist David Smith opens his new exhibition at the Harrison Lord Gallery in Brighouse on Saturday 23rd November. David, a well-established local artist, has created a new style of work for the show. It is inspired by the great LS Lowry, famous for his stick men and mill scenes. David grew up living across the road from busy factories. "As a child I witnessed the ending of the industrial era. Before cameras were as common as they are nowadays, I chose to record my surroundings with paint. The paintings in this exhibition are my memories of that time.” However, they are not mere copies of Lowry’s work. Although inspired by the same subjects David has developed his own style. "Of course, L S Lowry casts his great shadow over everything northern and I think my work gives a very respectful nod to the work of that great man." David Smith will be in the gallery on Saturday November 23rd, 11.30am to 3pm so pop in and have a chat. The exhibition runs for two weeks at the Harrison Lord Gallery, 5 Bradford Rd, Brighouse and is free to enter.
