Emma Whitelock & Sally Clarke: Echoes at Pyramid

Pyramid Gallery are bringing together the evocative work of two of our members; Emma Whitelock and Sally Clarke, in their Spring exhibition, “Echoes”.

 16th April – 9th May

Opening times:

Mon – Fri 10am – 5pm

Sat 10am – 5:30pm

Sun 11am – 4:30pm

Pyramid Gallery, 43 Stonegate, York, YO18AW.

Both women portray the female figure in atmospheric pieces, complimenting each other in their mood. Emma uses painting and printmaking, creating enigmatic works which combine pathos and memory with a deep connection to the Yorkshire landscape. Sally is interested in how the printmaking process can naturally evolve an image, her figures very much the focus in their dreamlike settings.

York Printmakers in residence at Murton Museum of Farming

York Printmakers are pleased to announce that we will be partaking in a residency at Murton Museum of Farming from March-October 2016.

What is an artists’ residency?

Artists’ residencies generally involve artists spending time in a particular environment, and creating new work in response to this experience. It is a chance to extend their creative work by developing different approaches, often in collaboration with other artists, the host organisation and the public.

Residencies can add a new dimension for the host because artists bring a fresh eye to things that may be taken for granted. Creative activities and exhibitions engage staff and visitors in new ways, encouraging curiosity, generating ideas and sharing different perspectives.

What will happen here?

There will be printmakers at the museum most weekends working on various print based activities, evolving work in progress will be on show, and the residency will culminate in October with an exhibition of new prints made here.
