Art in the Park returns...
We are delighted to announce that ‘Art in the Park’ 2023 - ‘Seasonal Perspectives’ will be on display in Rowntree Park from Saturday 26th of August 2023. We had a record number of entries, and it was extremely difficult to choose the display. We aimed for a range of styles and approaches that covered the seasons. We hope you enjoy the display! Some of the work will also be available to buy as prints, note cards and a 2024 calendar - and all sales go toward our volunteers work in maintaining and improving the park. Thank you to all the artists for supporting what we do.

Ian Rawling: Familiar And Found
14 June - 7 July 2024
Venue: York Fine Arts, 83 Low Petergate, York, YO1 7HY
York Fine Arts is delighted to announce its first solo exhibition of work by much-loved and collected pastel artist Ian Rawling, PS. From curios to the conventional, cars to culinary delights, ‘Ian Rawling: Familiar and Found’ showcases a spectacular selection of work that highlights Ian’s unparalleled ability to transform everyday subjects into extraordinary observations. Sometimes familiar and sometimes long since forgotten, Ian applies his acute observation and exceptional skill to find and elevate that which is often overlooked, unveiling the entrancing elements and details within.
A pastel artist working within the realm of contemporary realism, Ian strikes the perfect balance of impeccable precision and intuitive imagination. Favouring simple compositions and a limited colour palette, he uses soft pastels and pastel pencils as well as charcoal for his work, taking deliberate care to emphasise imperfections, textures and highlights. He methodically applies a range of techniques with his work, giving thoughtful consideration to mark-making methods and surface textures to achieve the desired outcome. While realism is his primary aim, Ian enjoys the fact that small details of his process and techniques remain and are revealed to viewers upon closer inspection.
It is Ian’s scrupulous attention to detail and overarching vision that has made him a standout artist amongst his contemporaries. His work demands viewers to pause and savour the intricacies of everyday life; each mark tells a story, each imperfection a testament to the beauty found in the seemingly mundane. Unsurprisingly, his work has received both affection and acclaim from galleries, societies and collectors alike. In just a few short years as a fine artist, he has won a host of awards including the Visitors Choice Award at the Pastel Society in both 2018 and 2019, the West Design-Faber Castell Award, the Schmincke Prize and the Caran d'Ache Award. In 2023, he was selected for the prestigious New Light Prize exhibition, cementing his place amongst the rising stars of Northern Art and beyond.

Gallery Manager Deanna Dawkins says, “There is a refreshing sense of honesty and humility to Ian’s work that captivates from first glance. From his initial choice of subject to his carefully crafted compositions, Ian tells the stories of objects with an almost curatorial level of objectivity, allowing them to speak and shine in their own right. Fine details and imperfections alike are laid bare and celebrated. It fosters an intense connection and serves as a poignant reminder that true artistry lies not only in what we see, but in how we perceive the world around us.”

Rise of the vandals - A history of York’s street art scene and beyond.
Rise of the vandals is the fourth project from Bombsquad – a York based non-profit art collective.

York Printmakers Annual Print Fair
The York Printmakers Autumn Fair is a well-established event in the city’s creative calendar. York Printmakers is a thriving, group of about 40 enthusiastic artists who work independently and come together to support and challenge each other by sharing opportunities, ideas and processes.

Our printmakers are no strangers to finding wonderful opportunities for creative ideas in their local surroundings. Some take inspiration from well-known landmarks; others look for beauty in less obvious places.

There will be lots more to see: etching, linocut, collagraph, monotype, screen print, solar plate, Japanese woodblock, stencilling and gel plate printing.

Our members have a wide range of printmaking backgrounds but we all share a passion for print. We are happy to chat about our ideas, processes and techniques. Some members also run printmaking courses so this is also a great opportunity to come and find out more and chat to the artists behind the prints.
There will be hundreds of original prints on show and for sale. Entry is free.
