As we look with excitement to the summer ahead, we celebrate the seasonal new collection of fine art to arrive at the gallery. With its bright skies, verdant fells and sweeping views of Swaledale’s Kidston Valley, Edward Hersey’s newest painting, ‘Crackpot Hall, North Yorkshire’, serves as a joyous promise of the season to come. A perfect representation of Hersey’s signature, highly detailed work, ‘Crackpot Hall, North Yorkshire’ is a prized centrepiece for both new and veteran Hersey collectors alike.
It is with equal excitement that we announce that next month, the work of contemporary landscape artist Clare Haley will once again grace the walls of York Fine Arts in her third annual solo exhibition, 'Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire'. From placid, sunlit valleys of green to suspenseful, stormy skies, the exhibition presents a spellbinding selection of Clare’s paintings that tell a comprehensive story of the raw, multifaceted northern landscape she so loves. The exhibition opens at our York gallery on Friday, the 27th of July and runs until Sunday, the 19th of August and will also be available to view online. Preview catalogues will also be available upon request; so do get in touch if you would like to receive this exclusive first look at the collection.
This month the gallery also received a superb collection of work by some of York Fine Arts’ most collectible artists, including Daniel Van der Putten, Michael John Ashcroft, Terence Clarke, Gordon Lees, Amanda Jackson, Terry Grundy, Stephen Hawkins, Raymond Campbell, Terry Evans, Alan Smith, Steve Thoms and Sean Durkin. New work will continue to arrive throughout the month, so be sure to check our Recently Acquired page to view these newest additions to the York Fine Arts collection.
We wish you the best, and look forward to welcoming you to our galleries soon.
