Essence of Coast and Dale, Landscapes by Judi Allinson

14th January - 2nd April
Judi Allinson has an emotional attachment to both the North Yorkshire Coast and the Yorkshire Dales having lived in both areas.
Her painterly plein air oil paintings capture the ephemeral beauty of wild flowers caught in the breeze, the transient effects of light or mist shrouding dale or cliff and the changing seasons. One section in her exhibition is devoted to the special landscape near Loftus where the Anglo-Saxon Princess lived, an ancient place imbued with history and atmosphere straddling the past and the present.

In The Shadow of The Works by Phil Meadows

4th February 2017 - April 2017
I grew up in Teesside with industrial giants always on the skyline. Now that many of them, which seemed so permanent are disappearing, my work is an attempt to record a passing age. I look at some of the characters I saw living their lives against the back drop of that industry.
