# Paul Horton Exhibition Preview

On Saturday 9th of May Castle Galleries, Newcastle is delighted to welcome much loved artist Paul Horton to the gallery. Paul Horton is fast gaining a reputation as one of the country’s most talented and popular pastel artists today, with many of his editions selling out upon release. Sometimes described as a modern-day Lowry, he draws upon his Midlands background for inspiration and produces work that is both humourous and inventive, with his own quirky view of the world. Many of Paul's popular character's feature in this world, often in the setting of his iconic street scenes and houses. His work contains universal themes that appeal to people of all ages, in all walks of life.

I first met Paul in 2002 while he was making an appearance as part of his "Homes and Hearts" Tour. Since then paul has produced an impressive body of work including originals and limited edition prints and sculpture. Throughout his time as a published artist Paul has worked in conjunction with various charitable organisations including NSPCC, Children in Need, Acorns Childrens Hospice, MAG and most recently donating a sketch to Comic Relief.

The charm, wit and warmth of Paul's work is reflected in his character. I for one am always delighted to be in Paul's company and would like to invite you spend some time with us in the gallery this Saturday.
Kind Regards
