Mike Leach Exhibition Of Abstract Paintings
📅 18 May - 21 July 2019
Pyramid Gallery, 43 Stonegate, York
York artist Mike Leach is a contemporary, abstract painter influenced by the textures, colours, shapes and decay found within the modern-urban landscape.
Mick works mainly with acrylics mixed with French chalk powder, applying paint with palette knives in order to gain the textured, layered effect that he finds so aesthetically pleasing. He then adds various colours and media to enhance the layers and textures in order to recreate the memory and feeling of the places that he finds most inspiring.

Samantha Somers Exhibition Art For Dance
📅 Saturday 18 - Sunday 26 May 2019
Pyramid Gallery, 43 Stonegate, York
Original artworks and limited edition prints of dancers rehearsing for The Northern Ballet's production of Jane Eyre & English National Ballet's Giselle.
Samantha's work involves continuous drawing to capture a pure line of motion, or working to 'clad the bone' with more presence and muscle. Whilst at the same time attempting to capture the energy of the motion and the artists reaction to it. Samantha has prioritised a style of painting and drawing which avoids being overly 'finished' or concerned with dressings and costume, so much as it is with the beautiful human form, sense of movement and the intellect in choreography.
Art for Dance will be one of four collections, created to raise support by donating a percentage to dance companies in a way that engages with the people who love dance.

This special exhibition marks 25 years since Terry Brett took over Pyramid Gallery in Stonegate. His very first sale was a beautiful white glass flask made by Peter Layton and sold to a German collector. Terry's passion for this art form was born on that day and since then Pyramid has continuously shown the work of Peter Layton and artists at London Glassblowing.
Pyramid is known to London Glassblowing as a 'Partner' gallery, a status that Terry regards as a privilege and denotes a special bond with the UK's premier studio for glass artists. This exhibition is called 'Partners' to celebrate a remarkable relationship traversing 25 years.

Wild About Stoats & Weasels: An Artist’s Perspective
📅 15 June - 7 July 2019
The Robert Fuller Gallery Ltd
Find out all about the secret lives of stoats and weasels at this fascinating wildlife art exhibition. A comprehensive collection of fine art paintings, photographs and short films, this event challenges everything you thought you knew about Britain’s most secretive mammals.
Artist Robert E Fuller, whose intense stoat studies are due to feature on TV in a new BBC Natural World Series, devoted five years to following the daily lives of wild weasels and stoats in his Yorkshire garden.
His new paintings feature weasel kits tumbling in play and stoat mothers gently tending to their young. Displayed alongside photographs and rare footage filmed inside their nests, the event defies common misconceptions about these little understood mammals.
Small, swift and deeply secretive, stoats and weasels have a reputation for cunning brutality. But until now, no one has actually studied their behaviour in any detail.
Robert Fuller deployed more than 60 surveillance cameras in his garden, getting to know six generations of the same stoat family. His discoveries reveal the extent of their tenacity as hunters whilst at the same time uncovering the cuddlier side to these remarkable mammals.
The exhibition includes live cameras offering visitors a direct view of weasels and stoats as they clamber over dry stone walls and disappear into their underground nests.
There will also be screens displaying the best of Robert's footage; including films of stoats swimming with the competence of mini-otters in tiny ponds!
Storyboards detailing the story behind this fascinating research project and introducing visitors to the individual stoat and weasel characters will also be on display.
