Bingley Gallery Exhibition: What We Did During Lockdown
The Bingley Gallery’s latest exhibition is a showcase for work completed during a year of lockdown. Whilst many of the artists; Jane Fielder, David Starley, L. Amy Charlesworth and Clarke Avery are regular exhibitors at the gallery we are also excited to include recent work by a new artist. William Morrison, is a painter who has a Turner-like ability to find drama in the landscape that surrounds us, and to present it in luscious palette of colours. For ‘Lockdown’ just a series of smaller oils are on show– he had to apologise that all bigger canvasses have been made inaccessible due to building work in his house.
L. Amy Charlesworth’s has revelled in the solitude and whilst her exquisitely detailed, hyperrealist style can never be expected to produce an abundance of work. We have no less than 5 new works.
Bingley’s own Jane Fielder continues to draw inspiration from Lockdown exercise walks in her local area ‘Magical Dusk- The River Aire, Esholt’ was motivated by a route in Lee Senior’s ‘Walking Wi’ One Foot in the Aire’ guide.into a swathe of colour across the artist’s garden and brought joy through the summer.
David has largely returned to the trees that fascinate and inspire him, whether they be a solitary majestic ash in Wharfedale, the repeated patterns of a silver birch copse, or wider landscapes such as ‘Autumnal Splendour’ at local beauty spot, Chellow Dene; a place that, for many, has combined not just a place to exercise but to bring solace to the mind in troubled times.
The exhibition will run on-line and in-window until the gallery is able to open to visitors on 12 April and will then run until 31 April.
