A NEW gallery has launched in the village of Nunnington.

Run by experienced gallerist Kevin Bradshaw, who not only curates exhibitions but also creates bespoke travel experiences, the space brings together the work of five artists working in Yorkshire who convey their love of the county’s landscape through a range of different media.

The artists are painters Liz Churton, Jonathan Pomroy, and Patrick Smith, award winning photographer Lucy Saggers and textile artist Justine Warner.

All five convey their passion for their subject in a variety of ways and media; each is deeply rooted in the dramatic beauty of the world around them.

Kevin said: “I decided to set up the gallery with these five artists because I love the way they work and am really excited about how their careers are progressing. I feel excited about how we’ve come together as a group and about how we work together.’

Not content with just creating a beautiful exhibition space in his Nunnington barn, Kevin has also taken exhibitions out to other locations, including the prestigious Raithwaite Sandsend and the Worsley Arms in Hovingham.

Nunnington Galleries can also be found monthly at Hovingham Village Market and made a special appearance on Saturday, October 5 for the market’s 10th anniversary where artist Patrick Smith also recited some of his poetry for the occasion.

Kevin said: “Visitors to Nunnington Galleries will find an inspiring selection of landscape paintings in watercolour, acrylic or oils and landscape prints, all depicting the North Yorkshire landscape, as well as wildlife paintings and drawings and award winning photography.

“With us also being able to exhibit the work in different locations means that it can be viewed in a different context and also that we are able to exhibit more of our artists’ work and also reach new audiences.”

The Barn in Church Street, Nunnington, is open Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm. For more information phone 01904 310 205 or go to www.nunningtongalleries.co.uk/
