What makes this gallery unique is the way that art is presented. All too often galleries are vast, hanger-like spaces with artwork highlighted with bright spotlights and hung on dazzling white,sterile walls. This, for many people, is an unfamiliar space that feels cold and unwelcoming. The Bleach House Gallery, on the other hand, is the only gallery in the area that integrates art and design into beautiful, contemporary room sets, to show off the work in a real context.

The first public display of my work was my picture of "A little girl in welliebobs". It was featured on a local TV programme, when I was only 8. As I grew older, my art turned into an obsessive hobbyand eventually, spurred on by friends and family, I've started to sell prints of my work. My paintings are "moments" and "memories" stored in my head, painted from memory, that make me smile. I want to share them and make others smile too.

In the first of the Grundy's outdoor courtyard commissions, Simeon Barclay b. Huddersfield, 1975 has created a series of four digital collages, which welcome the visitor from the street. The fourimages, which might be seen as contemporary updates to seaside postcards of yore, each incorporate motifs that are resonant with different aspects of the town and its cultural life, from its architecture and landmarks, to the Seasider's football team to history and celebrity.
This form of art reveals expression, detail, feeling and above all colour, which to me is one of the most important aspects of this art form. The colours used are spirit colour and the main ingredientis shellac with which the boards are given many coats. I was a French polisher and antique restorer, having learnt the trade from my late father, so the use of these materials has come as second nature to me.
