In the joyous spirit of spring, we send our warmest greetings to you all. Terence Clarke’s invigorating new painting ‘The Christmas Cactus and Pear’ comes as a welcome treat, its vibrant energy reviving even the coldest of early spring days. Trained at the Royal College of Art, York Fine Arts’ newest artist skilfully balances the reality of observation with his expressive liberation of intense light and rich colour. Bright, bold and masterfully executed, Terence’s vivid paintings are a singular addition to the gallery’s contemporary collection. You can read more about Terence Clarke and see his available work here.
April also welcomes the opening of our newest exhibition, ‘Tales of the Sea’, which brings together a mixed collection of paintings from some of the gallery’s finest marine artists. From soft, sandy shores to the magnificent wilderness of the open ocean, this new exhibition celebrates the simultaneous familiarity and adventure of the sea as it explores its myriad stories through a superior collection of fine art. The exhibition opens at our York gallery on Friday, the 6th of April and runs until Sunday, the 29th of April, and will also be available to view online here.
This month we are additionally excited to announce the expansion of the gallery’s home viewing service, which allows clients the opportunity to view artwork from the comfort of their own homes and determine how pieces work within the space. While many of our clients are already familiar with this service, the gallery has now made it easy to request a home viewing through our website; when viewing an artwork, simply click the ‘Home Viewing’ button and follow the prompts to send your request. Requests for home viewings may also be made by directly telephoning the gallery, so please do feel free to give us a call to discuss your requirements.
Finally, throughout the month the gallery has received a selection of new paintings by Neil Foggo, Terence Clarke, Sean Durkin, Stuart Herod, Gordon Lees and Richard Telford that are each deserving of special attention. Do have a look at our Recently Acquired page at your leisure to view these superb additions to the gallery’s spring collection.
We wish you the best and look forward to welcoming you to our galleries soon.
