Planned exhibitions for the forthcoming months are listed below. If you would like to discuss exhibiting at the Gallery on the Green, please contact the Curator.
21st May – 30th July 2016. Silk paintings of Yorkshire Dales scenes by local artist Christine Carradice.
Christine is a silk painter and textile artist based in Settle.
Her painting is inspired by the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales – the limestone crags, green fields, drystone walls, barns, farmhouses and flowers.
The Three Peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, from different viewpoints, all feature prominently in her work.
Christine’s pictures never have people in them. She prefers her work to show familiar scenes as places of calm and solitude just at the quiet time before people arrive and the day’s activities begin. She does, however, like to include buildings in some of her work. These pictures aim to show the last small influence of people on the landscape before the countryside opens out and the hills rise up.
30th July – 24th September 2016. Everyday objects in unusual perspectives, felt and textile designs and crafts by Escape Tunnel Crafts.
On escaping (or retiring) from teaching, sisters Chris Marflitt and Gill O’Donnell decided the time had come to develop their creative talents. Escape Tunnel Crafts is the result of that decision. In all their pieces they aim to look at life from a slightly “quirky” angle in order to produce items which are definitely unique. Consequently old traditions are revived to encourage the use of blossoming broomsticks as good luck symbols or to enable couples to “jump the broom”, while discarded scarves, clothes, plastic, ribbons and lace are up cycled into creative fashion accessories. Similarly everyday objects are photographed at unexpected angles to suggest letters of the alphabet and words and images merge together to suggest moods and provoke thought. Proud of their Geordie heritage, both sisters also have strong Yorkshire connections and their work reflects both their roots and love of travel while their poppies symbolise the influence of HM services in their lives.
