Staff show their artistic side

[Tuesday 29 September 2009]

Art lovers working for the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) have been given the chance to exhibit their own work or their favourite pieces by others.

For nearly three years the reception area at the Authority’s Yoredale offices in Bainbridge has been displaying the work of local artists ranging from oils, watercolours and pastels to printmaking, etchings and glass panels.

To date there have been 16 exhibitions, mainly individual artists although a couple have been joint shows, and another couple have been group exhibitions.

But Authority staff have now been given a turn, according to Richard Burnett, the YDNPA’s Head of Finance and Resources.

“During September and October we are showing some of the artwork belonging to Authority staff – either material they have produced themselves, or work they have acquired from local artists, all relating to or inspired by the Yorkshire Dales,” he said.

“We are showing an eclectic mix of styles and subjects, including paintings, photography, textiles, printmaking – reflecting the diverse range of tastes and interests of individuals working here.”

So far the reception area has firm bookings until next July 2010, including its first photography exhibition in January.
