Out-barns of Bowland


osborne 1
 7 September – 8 November 2019
Peter Osborne first learnt to paint and draw as a boy with the bird artist Rowland Green.  After two degrees, the second in Art History at the Courtauld Institute, he worked in art schools eventually becoming Head of the Blackburn School of Art and Design.  He is moved by the sad sight of fine old barns sinking into decay; this exhibition of watercolours is a result.



Return of the Twelve Days of Christmas


Knitted Twelve Days of Christmas

Drummers drumming. A small part of the exhibition

 

10 November 2019 – 10 January 2020

Six years ago the Gallery staged one of its most popular and most imaginative exhibitions. The 78 tiny all knitted figures that act out the words of the Twelve Days of Christmas amazed visitors and set most of them reciting the lines about what their true love gave to them on each of those days of Christmas.

The eight ladies knitting who produced the exhibition are: Jeanne Carr, Catherine Holland, Shirley Crosby, Alison Tyas, Joyce Elliot, Jacqui Lewington, Betty Beesley and Janet Lillywhite. The eight came forward in response to an article in Settle Community News and their work has subsequently been displayed elsewhere in Settle after its initial appearance in the gallery. The story of the twelve days and its creators formed part of our tenth anniversary celebration exhibition at the Folly this summer and it seemed appropriate to reunite the exhibition with its first home for this year’s Christmas exhibition.

The full story of the twelve days and it relation with other exhibitions was captured in this board from our tenth anniversary exhibition.
