Water & Music Exhibition Of Glass
18 March - 21 May 2017
Pyramid Gallery
‘Water & Music’ Glass inspired by the 300th anniversary of Handel’s Water Music
A collaboration between Pyramid Gallery, York and The Contemporary Glass Society.

The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) is the UK’s foremost organisation for supporting established artists, for supporting up-and-coming makers and for promoting contemporary glass in the wider art world. The CGS and Pyramid Gallery are extremely pleased to be collaborating once again in promoting exceptional talent, and on this occasion to be commemorating the 300th anniversary year of Handle’s fantastic Water Music.

The CGS invited its members to let their imagination flow and newly create an inspired piece of glass, or submit work that was directly inspired by Water or Music. From over 50 marvellous submissions, 27 British and International Glass Artists have been invited to submit work of various styles and glass making techniques. In addition to individual pieces, the exhibition will also include two installations. One will comprise many jingling glass tiles representing a waterfall by Liz French and the other a light and music installation by Paul Miller on Pate de Verre hanging panels by Griet Beyaert.

Albert Moore

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.

Raymond Campbell Exhibition
21 April - 14 May 2017
York Fine Arts, 83 Low Petergate, York, YO1 7HY
With great delight, York Fine Arts proudly announces a solo exhibition of original paintings by leading British still life artist Raymond Campbell. Brimming with indulgence and intrigue, the exhibition unveils a specially commissioned collection of Raymond’s still life work. From opulent banquet scenes to stimulating vanitas paintings, the exhibition presents a tantalising selection of work that immerses viewers in a full sensory experience.

For the discerning collector or first time buyer, the exhibition is a chance to view an exclusive collection of work from one of the gallery’s most popular and collectible artists. A paragon of contemporary still life painting, Raymond Campbell is most recognised for his curious paraphernalia arrangements reminiscent of 17th Century Dutch paintings. These luxurious tableaux brim with detailed precision and classically “Campbell-esque” contents, including vintage wine bottles, ripe fruits and rich cheeses.

Raymond Campbell has seen great success in his career as an artist. His work has been selected for the Royal Academy’s prestigious Summer Exhibition in 1992, 1993, 2013 and 2014, and he has also exhibited at The Mall Galleries in London. Campbell’s paintings continue to receive international recognition and acclaim, and can be found in private collections around the globe.

All paintings at the exhibition are available to purchase. Due to expected high volume of interest, an early viewing is recommended.

Robert E Fuller Summer Exhibition “Bringing up Baby”
Saturday 3 - Sunday 25 June 2017
Where: The Robert Fuller Gallery, Thixendale
Opening times: Weekday 9.30am-4.30pm Weekends 10.30am-4.30pm Free admission
From clucky ducks to pushy owls, this new series of paintings by Yorkshire wildlife artist Robert E Fuller reveals the wildly different ways animals bring up their broods. Painted in a precise, realistic style, the new art range includes TV screens streaming live footage from cameras hidden in the nests of garden birds, owls, weasel and stoats. These screens offer visitors to the show a direct window into the secret world of these creatures as they cope with the daily parenting challenges; from messy mealtimes to sibling rivalry. Video clips taken from footage gathered from these cameras have informed Robert Fuller's new collection of paintings and are on show alongside the artist's photographic studies of the different parenting styles of animals. Birdwatching walks and kids safaris to see badger cubs and owl chicks accompany the exhibition.

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.

Shandy Hall Gallery, Coxwold, York, YO61 4AD
