'The View from the Fells: In the Footsteps of Marie Hartley' extended until 24 January 2021
I'm very pleased to announce that 'The View from the Fells: In the Footsteps of Marie Hartley' at the Dales Countryside Museum has been extended until 24th January 2021 (PLEASE NOTE that the museum will be open at weekends only during January 2021).
This exhibition of collagraphs is inspired by the life and work of Marie Hartley and the Yorkshire Dales landscape. In the 1930s the artist and historian Marie Hartley carved exquisite woodblocks to illustrate her now classic books on Wensleydale, Swaledale and Wharfedale.
Nearly ninety years on, I have reprinted the Marie Hartley engravings and created a collection of my own collagraph prints. My prints of birds, flowers and Dales scenes have been inspired by re-tracing and repeatedly running along the paths which Marie Hartley walked.
The two-year project has come together in Views from the Fells - In the footsteps of Marie Hartley, a special exhibition at the Dales Countryside Museum (DCM) in Hawes. Featuring 25 of my new collagraphs, 15 wood engravings created by Marie Hartley and reprinted by myself plus artefacts from both of our studios: sketchbooks, printing blocks, tools & photographs.
