Postponed from May 2020, I’m delighted to be taking part in my first live exhibition in over a year!
'Imprints' in an exhibition by 17 members of York Printmakers.
Each print has been created in response to time spent in the North York Moors National Park. The exhibition includes examples of etching, linocut, collagraph, monotype, screen print, solar plate and stencilling.
8 May to 7 June 2021
Inspired by… gallery at The Moors National Park Centre, Danby, near Whitby, North York Moors. See North York Moors website for opening times and details.
On Tuesday I went to see the exhibition with a couple of other members of the group and to meet the Yorkshire Post photographer. So keep your eyes peeled for that!
These are a few photos from the exhibition and images of my linocut prints on show. There are framed and unframed pieces.
Each print is also available in my online shop.

Why not make a day of it and go for a walk while you're there?
Danby, Ainthorpe Rigg into Little Fryup Dale walk
From the Moors National Park Center, we crossed the River Esk to Ainthorpe and walked up onto the open moorland of Ainthorpe Rigg. Expansive views open out towards Blakey Ridge, Roseberry Topping and Danby.
Before walking down Danby Rigg into Little Fryup Dale, I loved the glorious views of
Round Hill and Fairy Cross Plain and Glaisdale Side, with their patchwork of field boundaries. And yes, those grey clouds caught us up and gave us a thorough drenching on our return via Duck Bridge!
