Art lovers are in for a special treat this weekend as artist Paul Horton visits an art gallery in Daventry to unveil his latest exhibition.

Paul Horton will visit the Evergreen Art Café in Sheaf Street on Saturday between noon and 4pm to talk about his latest collection.

Horton’s exhibition includes pieces such as Hustle & Bustle, The Painted Sky and The Open Road; featuring vibrant interpretations of street scenes and colourful landscapes, which are distinctive of the artist’s style and appreciated by all ages.

He will be talking to people at the gallery about his latest exhibition and the inspiration behind his paintings.

Horton’s portfolio has drawn comparisons to the subject matter of Lowry and the methods and materials of Degas. His work is immediately identifiable, in both presentation and subject; there are clear and constant truths that belong only to Horton and his audience.

And it’s not just the characters in the works, many aspects of Horton’s paintings carry a story or message; Scruff the dog, the detached house – the latter reappearing in different colours and on different hilltops throughout the last decade of Horton’s work.

Paul said: “To be able to share my work with people in the intimate setting of Evergreen Art Café will be great, as I love meeting people on a one to one basis to talk about art and share with them my inspiration and experience, which leads to the finished pieces.”

Simon Williams, gallery manager at Evergreen Art Café, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing Paul in the gallery.

“As an artist, he’s so enthusiastic about his work and relishes the opportunity to meet people to discuss the collection further.

“This will be an ideal opportunity to meet Paul in a relaxed and informal setting to find out the greater meaning of his work and hear from the artist first-hand the hard work that has gone in to create it.”
