A Sentimental Journey : The 250th Anniversary
20 May - 30 September 2018
Shandy Hall Gallery, Shandy Hall, Coxwold YO61 4AD
A new exhibition pays tribute to Laurence Sterne in this 250th anniversary year. 'A Sentimental Journey' was first published 27 February 1768 and, three weeks later on 18 March, Sterne died. His final work of fiction was published incomplete and although a message to the subscribers promised a further two volumes at a later date, this was not to be.

This exhibition contains a selection of original pen and ink drawings by two outstanding illustrators of A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy.

T.H. Robinson (1869–1954) came from a family of artists which included his more famous brother W. Heath Robinson. The drawings were published in book form in 1897 and the original edition contained over a hundred delicate and sensitive interpretations of the adventures of Mr. Yorick in France.

Martin Rowson is our finest cartoonist with work appearing regularly in the Guardian. He has published graphic novel versions of The Waste Land, Tristram Shandy and the Communist Manifesto. Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the LST commissioned the artist to illustrate a new edition of Sterne’s account of his travels. Rowson shows Mr Yorick (aka Sterne) in delicate situations where opposing sides of his nature struggle to dominate. Every encounter that takes place, whether with the 'fair fille de chambre' or a bird in a cage, demonstrates the dilemma of the Sentimental Traveller.

New work by the internationally acclaimed ‘miner of books’ Brian Dettmer can be seen, as well as an historic work by Adeline Newman (a mysterious artist about whom little is known) entitled The Starling (1937).

Clare Haley: 'Light Of Yorkshire'
📅 27 July - 19 August 2018
York Fine Arts, 83 Low Petergate, York, YO1 7HY
With great delight, York Fine Arts proudly announces its third annual solo exhibition of original paintings by contemporary landscape artist Clare Haley. ‘Clare Haley: Light of Yorkshire’ showcases a spellbinding collection of work that magnificently articulates the raw, dramatic beauty of landscape and light. From placid, sunlit valleys of green to suspenseful, stormy skies, the exhibition presents a spectacular selection of Clare’s paintings that tell a comprehensive story of the multifaceted northern landscape she so loves.

The exhibition is an opportunity for discerning art collectors and first-time buyers alike to view an exclusive collection of artwork from one of the most exciting emerging artists of the north. A timeless bridge between the traditional heritage of the arts and the innovation of contemporary vision, Clare’s work offers a universal appeal to even the most diverse range of collectors.

Arguably one of Yorkshire’s top emerging artists, ‘Light of Yorkshire’ Clare Haley exquisitely captures the emotion and ethereal nature of the British landscape with unparalleled ingenuity. Working primarily from memory, Clare creates paintings that push the boundaries of imagination whilst retaining an organic authenticity. Since 2010, she has flourished as a professional artist, attaining great success and gaining an international, loyal following at an astonishing pace.

Clare describes her work as “contemporary northern landscapes which mostly appear timeless, of any era—earthy, wild places to become lost in.” She develops the atmospheric content of her paintings through location photography, research of weather and cloud consequences, imagined places and her experience living in an area of raw beauty. With nods to the drama of John Martin’s apocalyptic paintings and to the colours and heritage of Sidney Richard Percy’s landscapes, Clare’s own unique style resurrects the tradition of British landscape painting and brings it into the 21st century with graceful transcendence.

As Clare was born and raised in West Yorkshire, it is no coincidence that Clare’s largest solo exhibition of the year coincides with Yorkshire Day, celebrated on the 1st of August. Gallery Manager Deanna Dawkins says, “The decision to schedule Clare’s exhibition to coincide with Yorkshire Day was always a natural conclusion. Her passion for the northern landscape and her proud Yorkshire roots are so deeply ingrained in her paintings that really, a celebration of Clare’s work is a celebration of Yorkshire itself and all that it has to offer.”

The exhibition opens Friday, 27th of July and runs until Sunday, 19th of August 2018. Due to expected high volume of interest, an early viewing is recommended.
