A Wondering Presence

  • 14 February — 16 March 2015 *on now

Visual artist Wendy Tate embarks on a poetic exploration of the National Park, through her painting, printmaking, poetry, ceramics and photography.

Wendy Tate is a visual artist working in paint, photography, print and ceramics.

Wendy is currently interested in the way landscape can speak of the human condition. Her work tries to capture more than just mere image – she endeavours to represent both the image and the feeling of awe that she experiences when at large in the landscape.


Of Our Place

  • 14 February — 16 March 2015 *on now

Artists Pamela Scott and Ian Nicholas, and sculptor Anthony Cox, find inspiration in the moors and coastal villages.

Pamela Scott has been painting in different mediums for some years, having studied with and gained inspiration from leading artists in the North Yorkshire area.

Ian Nicholas was born and raised in Marske by the Sea, and the North York Moors and the surrounding area is a special place for him. Although Ian has painted in many different places – from the northern borders to the Norfolk coast – it’s the open space and solitude of the moorlands that inspire him most.

Anthony Cox has a love of art that began at a very early age. In the mid-1960s he was greatly inspired by the Welsh-Canadian painter, Llewellyn Petley-Jones, under whose tutorship Anthony learned to paint in watercolour. He has since developed his pictorial work further in oil and pastel.
