Art and the world of cycling

April 16  to May 20 2016: To mark the visit of the Tour de Yorkshire to Settle on 29 April 2016, the Gallery on the Green  staged a special exhibition looking at the links between art and the world of cycling. It began with the early days of cycling – featuring a little known work by science fiction writer HG Wells about a cycling adventure. The main attraction was a collection of postcards – showing both the variety of bike designs and the use of the bicycle in advertising and various art forms. We  also included iconic posters from around the world.  The exhibition was supported by Settle Town Council.  See also  Tour de Yorkshire  The exhibition was featured in the Craven Herald on April 14.Craven Herald 14 April
