During lockdown West Yorkshire artist became fascinated by the story of "Gentleman Jack" and was inspired to produce a series of portraits of the actresses playing Anne Lister and Ann Walker - Suranne Jones and Sophie Rundle.
As a native of Bradford and living close to Ann Walker's home of Shibden Hall near Halifax, David was able to visit frequently to soak up the atmosphere of the place and he has produced some stunning work, which will be on show at Kentmere Gallery from 7th May.
Kentmere House Gallery is an independent gallery founded by Ann and David Petherick in 1991 and based in their home, a spacious Edwardian house built, and originally occupied, by the Methodists. There is a splendid staircase and a number of high, well-lit rooms ideal for showing art, and the house overlooks York’s famous Knavesmire and racecourse.
It is home to a changing display of original works of art by a great range of artists – local, regional and those with national reputations. Ann firmly believes that original art should be available to everyone, and there is a wide range of prices and a deliberate policy of hanging nationally-known painters next to promising newcomers.
