Light and Landscape
15th Nov 2011 - 8th Jan 2012
Heather has a solo exhibition at Upfront every two years. The title of this years exhibiton describes her work perfectly - the stunning way in which she captures changing light on the landscape.
Land & Sea
4th Oct 2011 - 13th Nov 2011
Jonathan and Alison have become synonymous with landscape painting in this region. Both have their own distinct approach, which creates an exciting dialogue and contrast. A fresh and modern approach to landscape painting.
Alison Critchlow and Jonathan Trotman
"Land and Sea" brings together paintings by Jonathan Trotman and Alison Critchlow. Jonathanís work focuses mainly on the Cumbrian fells, painted in his own bold and expressive way with rocks, lakes and figures all playing their important roles. Alisonís paintings look at the sea with its rhythm and power on the beaches and coves of the west coast. The excitement and energy of the landscape provides the inspiration for both artists and this exhibition showcases their individual ways of seeing the world around them.
A Dales High Way
23rd Aug 2011 - 2nd Oct 2011
The natural beauty of A Dales High Way is not just attracting walkers to the route, it has now inspired an artist to create a new exhibition of paintings devoted entirely to scenes from the walk. The spectacular walking route which runs from Saltaire in West Yorkshire to Appleby in Cumbria, is the inspiration for the latest exhibition of work by Saltaire artist, David Starley.
David Starley is a talented Saltaire landscape artist. His atmospheric oil paintings capture the changing moods of the Yorkshire Dales in a way that no other media quite manages. His work is highly textured with paint layered thickly onto the canvas. Stand too close and the pictures look nothing more than random blobs and peaks. Stand back and a changing landscape emerges as light moves across the picture.
In late 2010 David began to walk A Dales High Way and quickly realised that many of the themes of his work; prehistoric rock art on Rombald's Moor, the flower meadows of Dentdale, the golden stonework of Saltaire itself were all to be seen on the route. Excited by the varied landscapes along the way, David is now working on "Dales High Way Art", an exhibition of paintings inspired by the walk.
