THREE Guiseley artists are inviting the public to an exhibition they are holding this month.

Carol Warneford, Julie Bruce and Janis Halliwell - who call themselves Brushstrokes - will be exhibiting work at a cafe near Shipley.

The friends, who are all members of Guiseley Art Club, will stage their exhibition at Higher Ground Cafe, Hirst Wood, Shipley, BS19 4BY.

The event will take place from February 8 until February 28 and will be open each week from 9.30am to 4pm from Tuesday to Sunday.

Carol said: “The owner of the cafe does not charge us but we can make a voluntary donation to a couple of ventures his son and goddaughter are involved with abroad. One is an orphanage and the other a hospital for mums. Nice to think that our sales will be helping them out.”

She added: “The cafe is located near the picturesque Hirst Lock on the Leeds - Liverpool Canal. It’s a great place to visit after a walk down the canal.

Carol described Brushstrokes as “a group of friends who love creating art works in a variety of media.”

She said they would welcome support from the public.

Guiseley Art Club describes itself as “a friendly group of artists who enjoy coming together to share our interest in creating art.”

The club meets from 1.30am to 4pm on Mondays at The Methodist Church Hall, Orchard Way, Off Oxford Road, Guiseley, LS20 9EP

The club was formed by Joan Hobson who is now an honorary life member and who still visits the group when she can. She initially ran the club from Guiseley Theatre.
