With rays of dazzling winter sunshine upon us, we find ourselves looking excitedly to the year ahead. This time of year, there are few greater joys than stepping into one’s garden and spotting the unmistakable features of the robin. Delicately perched on his water pump watchtower, Wayne Westwood’s exquisitely rendered Morning Visitor waits among a light dusting of snow. With bright, inquisitive eyes and distinctive, warming plumage, Britain’s beloved national bird remains steadfast and cheerful as the winter sun rises.
March sees the opening of two new exhibitions at the branches of York Fine Arts. At our York gallery, we celebrate the opening of ‘All Things Bright’, an invigorating new exhibition of original paintings from Terence Clarke, Julian Mason, Terry Evans and Suzie Emery that runs until Sunday, the 24th of March. Bold, vivid and kaleidoscopic, this exclusive collection of artwork has been curated to stimulate the senses and highlight the joys and depths of colour. In addition, we eagerly await the opening of ‘Into the Wild: Britain’s Rugged Landscapes’ on Friday, the 15th of March at our Harrogate gallery. From the Scottish Highlands to the English Lake district, the exhibition brings together a splendid array of landscape and wildlife paintings that revel in the idyllic wilds of the British countryside. For those unable to visit in person, both exhibitions will also be available to view on our website.
In other exciting news, the gallery is thrilled to announce the arrival of a new, exclusive signed limited-edition print by four-time Royal Academy exhibitor Raymond Campbell.
