The exhibition that I have been very much part of “ A Hat for all seasons “ at Bankfield Museum at Halifax finally finished at the end of September after 7 months of showing. Jane Austin’s exhibition “Three Miles from home “ being ready and waiting to take it’s place.
There was a chance that I could have felt really sad, but having been invited to the preview evening on Friday night by Jane, it was a lovely opportunity to see the new show and collect my hats for their safe return back to my own tribe here in South Yorkshire.
The outing became a triple bonus as we made a stopover at Sowerby Bridge, the place where my father originally came from and also lived until his early teenage years . Tales now long passed making a comeback accompanied by an impressive mighty downpour !
Jane is a talented watercolour artist and local to Halifax (hence the title ) It is an impressive display if you are thinking about making a trip .
Reflecting on some of the comments made about my exhibits was a very rewarding experience. My design “Adora “ in the first picture, inspired by Spring being the favouite, with Berry and Hazel also in the running.
