Art and music combine in new exhibition.

HUDDERSFIELD Art Gallery will be exhibiting 'Beyond the Horizon' - a new display by the late British artist Chris Gollon.

Art enthusiasts will be keen to get a glimpse of this major solo museum exhibition - a retrospective of Gollon's paintings following his untimely death in 2017.

Gollon, born in 1953, first came to the attention of the art world when he was selected as finalist in The Spectator Prize, 1989.

Following on from a number of solo museum exhibitions and commissions in the UK, he exhibited at Art Chicago '97. His work has been shown in St Paul's Cathedral and has been acquired by major public collections including the British Museum.

This solo exhibition will include 'Einstein & The Jealous Monk (after Bob Dylan's Desolation Row)', which was acquired in 2005 by Huddersfield Art Gallery for its permanent collection.

This year, two years after his death, IAP Fine Art and the Sleaford Mods band embarked on a collaborative film project entitled Firewall. The opening event will feature a debut screening of the film. Clr Rob Walker, cabinet member for culture and environment, said: "This exhibition is really exciting. I am very pleased that we are able to attract significant exhibitions from internationally-renowned artists. The links between the visual art work and music should make this show of interest to a wide range of people.

"His collection of art is fascinating and spans 20 years of his career, showing only paintings related to music. We're expecting it to be really busy.

"There's also a unique film which is a collage of his imagery with the Sleaford Mods' track 'Firewall' and will be shown for the first time on October 12 and throughout the duration of the exhibition."

Beyond the Horizon will run from October 12 until January 4 2020.
