We invite you to take a step away from the season’s hustle and bustle and explore an exclusive selection of high quality fine art & craft. ‘Winterlude’ is an opportunity to buy original artworks direct from the artist’s studio to feature in your home and liven up your living space ready for Christmas entertaining. A chance to treat yourself to something special in the middle of Winter as well as buy a unique gift for a loved one.
Curator for the exhibition, Grace Whowell, commented, ”The work is diverse in its subject matter and creation; each artist has a story to tell but it is evident that they are inspired by this amazing place, Yorkshire, in which they live and work.”
