Over at the David Wright Gallery, Artsmill in Hebden Bridge an exhibition of Richard Wincer’s work goes on show from August 6 - 31 (11am to 4pm), Wednesday to Sunday.

Richard, who lives and creates his art in Hebden Bridge, has built up a large following and is a regular exhibitor in the Summer Show at the Royal Academy.
