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.
