Local artist Roo Waterhouse has a short exhibition of paintings at the newly opened Unit Three Gallery at Northlight Art Studios in Hebden Bridge.

It starts tonight (June 5) from 6.30pm -8pm, and over the weekend from 11am to 4pm.

Since graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2010, Roo has established herself as a figurative painter with a fascination towards poetic narrative, exhibiting widely across the North of England in solo exhibitions and in London galleries.

She was a finalist in the Artist and Illustrator ‘Artist of the Year 2013’ show at The Mall Galleries, London. Her paintings are collected around the country.

This exhibition contains a series of new book paintings (‘Shelf-Portraits’) alongside some old favourites.

All the paintings on show are on their way down to three galleries in London.

“By capturing everyday objects and preserving them in paint I seek to pay homage to those things around us which we often may take for granted, and to remind us to stop and appreciate them,” says Roo.’’
