It has been lovely to be able to take part in some superb 'in person' creative workshops again this year. A little seasonal one happened a couple of weeks ago at Rural Arts in Thirsk. I collected my ceramic Christmas tree lantern this week, after it had been in the kiln, and I love it.
LAST CHANCE TO SEE.
It is the last week for our exhibition Summer Eclectic, at the wonderful Blue Tree Gallery on Bootham in York.
The gallery will be open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday this week.
I hope that you enjoy visiting and seeing our paintings, which really are an eclectic mix from four superb, very different, Yorkshire artists.
I am so pleased to see some normality returning and galleries open for in-person visits again, such luxury which we took for granted...
The timing couldn't be more perfect for the start of my summer exhibition 'Summer Eclectic' at the superb Blue Tree Gallery in York.
This summer show features nine new paintings, which I have been working on during lockdown, and some beautiful work created by three very well established Yorkshire artists - Deborah Grice, Colin Cook and Janine Baldwin.
For more information about opening times and how to find the gallery please visit www.bluetreegallery.co.uk/summer-eclectic-exhibition
I hope that you have a wonderful visit to the gallery, and enjoy wandering around the streets of this magnificent city, drinking coffee and eating fabulous food.
At last the wonderful Body of Water Exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills in Leeds can open its doors to the art loving public today.
The exhibition has been extended until the 25th of April, so you can enjoy all the beautiful art on display in person.
I have two paintings on show, together with my audio visual installation all about the Yorkshire fishing industry, Of The Sea.
I hope that you enjoy your visit, it is a really superb gallery and I can't wait to visit too!
I am thrilled to have two of my paintings in the Body of Water Exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills in Leeds. Together with my audio visual installation all about the Yorkshire fishing industry, Of The Sea.
Sadly due to the Covid19 pandemic the exhibition can only be viewed online at present. However the gallery will open its doors if circumstances change, and the exhibition has been curated and is ready to be seen.
You can view all of the artist's wonderful water inspired work, see my documentary story of our fishing industry, and purchase the art direct from the gallery by clicking on the link below.
I am thrilled to have three of my paintings chosen to be a part of this event at Rudding Park Hotel on the 12th of March 2020.
Henshaws is a charity very close to my heart, and all of the commission from the superb art sold on the evening, will be going to Henshaws Arts & Craft Centre.
There is more information on the event and Henshaws Arts & Craft Centre here:-
'At Henshaws Arts & Crafts we make more than art. We bring people together in an atmosphere that never fails to inspire. Through our workshops, people living with a range of disabilities discover their talents, put them into practice, and realise their full potential.'
If you couldn't get over to Gallery 49 in Bridlington for my exhibition Of The Sea worry not. These five paintings are now on display and available to buy in the upstairs space of this wonderful contemporary gallery.
My solo exhibition Of The Sea has been extended for an extra week. Gallery Forty-Nine in Bridlington Old Town will be open for three extra days, so that you can enjoy my story of the Yorkshire fishing industry. Gallery times 10.30am to 3pm on the 30th January - 1st of February.
I attended an amazing preview at Zillah Bell Gallery last Friday for the gallery’s winter exhibition. I have to say that the curation is wonderful, and personally I feel that it is the best exhibition I have seen so far at this super contemporary gallery in North Yorkshire. I am chuffed to bits to have these four paintings included in the show.
I was thrilled to have my audio visual installation 'Of The Sea' shown on the big screen this weekend, at the Spotlight Theatre in Bridlington, before all of their performances.
If you would like to see this evocative installation it will be on display, together with my paintings inspired by the Yorkshire fishing industry, at Gallery Forty-Nine in Bridlington Old Town until the 25th of January 2020.
Here are some of the images which form a part of my story of our local fishing heritage.
