On the cusp of summer, we send our warmest greetings to you all. June brings a burst of excitement to the gallery as we welcome three new artists: British landscape artist David Sawyer RBA, local contemporary artist Steve Williams and British equestrian artist Natalie Stutely. David is a member of the prestigious Royal Society of British Artists and describes himself as a modern British Impressionist, working within the tradition of landscape painting. His new painting 'The Old Bridge and Cathedral, Beziers' is a pleasure to behold. With blue skies, warm tones and architectural detail expertly brought together, the scene highlights the beautiful interaction between the manmade and natural world.
York artist Steve Williams is another exciting addition to the gallery, his bright and emotive paintings providing a fresh perspective of the Yorkshire landscape. Full of energy, texture, movement and vibrant colour, Steve’s paintings allow collectors to indulge in more than just beauty; but furthermore a multi-sensory experience. Equally captivating is the work of equestrian artist Natalie Stutely. Natalie’s paintings are fuelled by her lifelong passion for horses, and aims to incorporate depth and fluidity in her work reflective of these magnificent creatures. Both Steve and Natalie’s biographies and new work are available on the website, so do take a look to see what these two fantastic artists have to offer.
The gallery is also delighted to announce our upcoming exhibition, ‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’, featuring a spectacular collection of work by British landscape artist Clare Haley. Contemporary whilst retaining traditional heritage, Clare’s paintings capture the British landscape with unparalleled ingenuity, making her a beacon amongst her contemporaries. Arguably one of Yorkshire’s top emerging artists, Clare is certainly an artist to watch as she continues to awe and inspire. The exhibition opens on the 29th of July, so be sure to mark your calendars now to ensure a first look at this exciting collection.
This month the gallery also received new work by Michael John Ashcroft, Sean Durkin, Wayne Westwood, Gordon Lees, Edward Hersey, Raymond Campbell, Richard Telford, Terry Evans and Juriy Ohremovich. View our Recently Acquired page to see these newest additions to the gallery’s collection.
We send you the best, and look forward to seeing you soon.
