AN artist from a tiny Yorkshire Dales village whose work is known world-wide is staging an exhibition of his works at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes.
He is David Cook, from best-selling books by the American artist Bill Bryson. The two met when Bryson was a close neighbour in Malhamdale, where he wrote some of the best-known works.
Sixteen works by David, abstracts inspired by the Dales landscape, are on show, along with ceramic wall hangings by another artist based nearby, Cyrus Metcalfe, from Ayrton, who was able to building his career thanks to support from the Prince’s Trust, the private charity run by another lover of the Dales, Prince Charles.
This is the first time both artists have featured at the museum and the exhibition runs until May 2 from 10am-5pm. Admission is free.
