Art and the world of cycling


April 16  to May 20: To mark the visit of the Tour de Yorkshire to Settle on 29 April , the Gallery on the Green is staging a special exhibition looking at the links between art and the world of cycling. It starts with the early days of cycling – featuring a little known work by science fiction writer HG Wells about a cycling adventure. The main attraction is 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 include iconic posters from around the world.  The exhibition has been 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
