BRIAN LEWIS, Pontefract 1991.

Writer, artist, poet, historian and founder of the much missed Yorkshire Arts Circus, Brian Lewis was kind and full of encouragement when I visited him and his team to show them some of my early work in 1990.

Brian also wrote an article about the Locals exhibition, commenting at one point that, “the collection makes Pontefract seem the sort of place respectable people should avoid on a Friday night.”
