Last chance to see popular 'Walk this Way' exhibition at Beverley Art GalleryFri 10th March 2023
The popular exhibition at Beverley Art Gallery, ‘Walk This Way’, a celebration of 40 years of the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail, through the work of resident artists Ian & Stef Mitchell, will close on Saturday, 18 March.
Visitors have very much enjoyed their experience at the exhibition, with comments like:
"Wow - what a fantastic exhibition. Very uplifting"
"Really enjoyed seeing how differently you abstracted the landscape, and taking some inspiration from both of you"
"The Wolds landscape is truly inspirational"
"Really enjoyed the exhibition - conjures up the beauty of this hidden trail. Yorkshire's best kept secret"
"Fabulous exhibition celebrating our local area. 5 stars."
Curator Hannah Willetts said: “Ian and Stef Mitchell have a strong following and I’m absolutely delighted that this beautiful exhibition has been so well received.
“Don’t miss your last chance to come along and celebrate the Yorkshire Wolds Way than through the eyes of these artists.”
The Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail celebrated its 40th birthday in October, 2022. The dramatic landscape, stunning views, big skies and abundance of wildlife has been stunning visitors along the 79 mile route from Hessle to Filey for the last 40 years.
Ian works digitally to produce modern minimal limited-edition landscape prints from the home and office. Drawing digitally, he distils and refines the landscape down to reduced minimal forms and shapes. Working in the picturesque tradition, Ian has produced a body of work that takes 'The View' as inspiration.
Stef combines nature print made directly from plants gathered along the Wolds Way with colourful paintings depicting a range of wildflowers seen on the trail. Imaginary floral arrangements are printed in vase forms which hold the colours and energy of the landscape walked through.
Beverley Art Gallery is open six days a week in the Treasure House on Champney Road, and admission is free. There is no need to book to attend the exhibition.
