Exhibition: Albert Moore: Of Beauty and Aesthetics 7 April - 1 October 2017
York Art Gallery will present the first monographic exhibition of York born artist Albert Joseph Moore since the artist’s death in 1893. Featuring more than 20 paintings and watercolours, it will highlight the beautiful and classical women for which the artist is most famous and demonstrate the modernity of Moore’s approach.
Albert Moore was one of the leading artists of the Aesthetic movement who prioritised mood, colour harmony and beauty of form over subject matter to create ‘art for art’s sake’. The exhibition will explore Albert Moore’s career and body of work using the latest research into his work by leading experts. It will include examples of Moore’s youthful Pre-Raphaelite works as well as the hauntingly beautiful classical figures of his mature style.
Affecting Moments 4 June - 29 September 2017 Shandy Hall Gallery
The exhibition shows some of the prints of English literature engraved in the last quarter of the eighteenth century which were singly issued rather than being in books. Most of these are in the technique of stipple, which suddenly became popular with the increased demand for decorative prints in the 1770s.
With the publication of 'A Sentimental Journey' in 1768, Laurence Sterne played an important part in moulding public taste for the emotional response, and in the last quarter of the eighteenth century the growing popularity of novels coincided with the increased availability of prints depicting moving scenes from their pages.
‘Affecting Moments’ exhibits a collection of such scenes, often of high emotional intensity, from literature in the Age of Romantic Sensibility.
On the whole artists looked for moving incidents to depict - hence the 'Affecting Moments' title of the exhibition. A high proportion of the prints show powerful female emotion treated in a sentimental way.

David Greenwood loves painting York. "Light & colour are my inspiration & I enjoy the immediacy of using a chalk stick rather than the more remote brush, with the resulting sheer joy of making pure pigment marks on a textured surface."
David's work is balanced between realism & abstraction, enabling us to see familiar views in a new way. A masterful painter of townscape, he never tires of exploring York's streets & buildings, snickleways & details, all of which he portrays in his energetic & distinctive style, often with busy bustling streets. He is also an amazingly skilful portrait painter, for which he has won many commissions.
