As winter slowly draws to a close, daydreams of spring begin to bloom. Jacqueline Stanhope’s newest painting, ‘Shire Horses in Spring’, is a blissful reminder of the bright new season ahead. Bathed in warm light, the painting has a soft elegance worthy of the majestic animals within.
As spring is the season for new beginnings, the gallery can think of no better time to announce that York Fine Arts will be opening a new branch in Harrogate. The Harrogate branch will showcase some of the very best York Fine Arts has to offer, and will provide another convenient location where clients can view the gallery’s collection and take advantage of our gallery services. The gallery will open in early spring; but further details surrounding the opening will be provided closer to the opening day.
In other news, this month the gallery received over fifty new paintings, including work by Edward Hersey, Gordon Lees, Michael James Smith, Raymond Campbell and Terry Evans among others. From small, quaint landscapes to large statement pieces, the new work encompasses a wide variety of traditional and contemporary paintings of the highest calibre. Visit our Recently Acquired page to browse these new additions to the gallery’s collection.
Finally, the gallery’s newest exhibition ‘Animalia’ opens this month. Dedicated to the magnificent animals of the natural world, ‘Animalia’ aims to highlight the beauty of these creatures and to celebrate the intricate relationship between humans and the animal kingdom. From exotic African wildlife to domesticated companions closer to home, the exhibition presents a variety of these animals in a beautifully organic blend of scientific observation and artistic vision. The exhibition opens on Friday, the 3rd of March and runs until Sunday, the 26th of March 2017. For those unable to view in person, the exhibition will also be available to view online.
We wish you the best, and look forward to welcoming you to the gallery soon.
The Directors at York Fine Arts
Michael’s work is truthful, painted with astounding precision and clarity. While many modern landscape artists can sometimes over-romanticise or exaggerate, Smith’s applied restraint allows the country’s natural beauty to speak for itself. With such a unique style that appeals to a wide variety of collectors, demand for Michael’s work is positively insatiable.
Seven original paintings by Michael James Smith are available for purchase.
As a highly regarded British still life artist, Raymond Campbell is most recognised for his curious paraphernalia arrangements, reminiscent of the 17th Century Dutch painters. These unique tableaux can be identified by their detailed precision and classically “Campbell-esque” contents including vintage wine bottles and sepia photographs.
A selection of original paintings by Raymond Campbell are available for purchase.
Renowned for his style and attention to the detail of the British countryside, Edward Hersey has forged a strong loyal international following. His application of mood and lighting has made him one of the most highly sought after traditional painters of his generation.
A selection of paintings by Edward Hersey are available for purchase.
A painter of horses, hounds and wildlife, Stephen Park is an accomplished artist. It can take many weeks of research and long hours at the easel to produce a painting of the quality that is required in today’s market. Stephen continues to prove fiercely popular with his collectors, and has had commissions from as far afield as the USA, Australia and Europe.
Eleven original paintings by Stephen Park are available for purchase.
