Bingley gallery Christmas Exhibition
The Christmas Exhibition opening on 19 November, features some of The Bingley Gallery's favourite artists. Jane Fielder and Amy Charlesworth, in particular, have been working hard to produce new work. Jane’s includes some vibrant local scenes, many featuring Bingley itself including a rare work in acrylic from that now well-known balcony in Limefield Mill. There are also more delicate studies of wildflowers.
Amy has painted a new series of robins, all individually characterful. There’s also a series of snowy landscapes featuring Ribblehead viaduct, Kate Stewart’s deliciously beautiful coloured and embroidered textiles. The list of further artists includes myself with an atmospheric interpretation of a steam barge at Saltaire based on a historic photo by Bill King, Jan Whittock has some gorgeously embossed etchings, Mike Bentley has turned wood and Gavin Edwards wooden panels. One of our most sought after lines this year has been Nettleton Pottery’s, free-form ceramics, impressed with patterns of heritage textiles externally and deeply glazed inside. Add to these Lis Holt’s hand-built ceramics, Clarke Avery’s new moorland scenes, our last Judith Levin oi paintingl, Carol Sterritt’s wire sculptures and Mick Kirkby-Geddes’ welded ones, not to mention a few others with just one or two pieces.
For those on the lookout for Christmas presents we have a range of smaller gifts, mugs, coasters, glass chopping boards and framed prints featuring my designs. We also have a small stock of Skyware walking guides and copies of Alan Cattell’s Bingley Living History booklet. For those who opt on the safe side, vouchers can be made up to any amount.
