The Working Dales takes a theme which reflects the various aspects of work in the Pennines.

Ian Scott Massie saw this exhibition with Heart Gallery as an opportunity to explore the kind of labour - past and present - which gives this area its unique personality.

The pictures comprise watercolours worked in rich colour on paper (made, appropriately, from cotton rags) and screen prints made through a reduction process involving pressing ink through a single screen which is gradually blocked out, meaning there is no turning back if and when mistakes are made.

The paintings depict various local scenes including Gibson Mill, The Piece Hall and Hebden Bridge.
