Meet the Artist Event: Clare Haley

/ Monday 1st of July, 2019

York Fine Arts is delighted to announce that Yorkshire artist Clare Haley will be visiting the gallery on Saturday the 27th of July 2019 to celebrate the opening of her exhibition, ‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’. From 11:30am-2:00pm, visitors will have a special opportunity to meet Clare and discuss the exhibition, her work, her inspiration and her life as a professional artist.

Of the event, Gallery Manager Deanna Dawkins said, “It’s always such a treat to be able to meet and chat with artists in person; their fascinating, first-hand narratives and insight really add an even deeper layer of enjoyment from their work. As Clare’s paintings primarily spring from her imagination, this is a particularly exciting opportunity to meet the mind behind the masterpiece.”




Painting professionally since 2010, Yorkshire artist Clare Haley is best known for her dramatic, light-drenched landscapes. Working in oils from her small studio in Holmfirth, Clare seeks to capture the untamed allure and emotion of the northern landscape she so loves. She develops the atmospheric content of her paintings through location photography, research of weather and cloud consequences, imagined places and her experience living in an area of such raw beauty.

‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’ opens on Friday, the 26th of July and runs until Sunday, the 18th of August. All paintings in the exhibition are available for purchase. All paintings are also eligible for the Own Art scheme, which gives collectors the option to spread the cost of a purchase over 10 interest-free payments.
