Galleries & Up-coming Exhibitions
Updated: 17 October 2018
You'll find below a list of both exhibitions and galleries where my UK landscape paintings and prints can be seen first-hand.
My galleries and exhibitions are all in the county of Yorkshire at this time, though I am hoping to be able to offer my art in other parts of the UK in future.
City Screen York
A sample of my original paintings and prints will be on show, to see first-hand, at City Screen, York, early in 2019. So if Santa brings you any Christmas money, perhaps you'd like to pop along to the lovely cafe in City Screen on Coney Street in the middle of York, to see for yourself what the quality of my art is like.
Solo show Burton Agnes Courtyard Gallery
Updated: 18 October 2018
So pleased to announce I'll be in the Courtyard Gallery at Burton Agnes Hall in May 2019.
It's free parking and entry to the gallery and to the lovely cafe in the courtyard for lunch too, whether or not you decide to visit the hall and gardens while you're there. Perhaps pop-in on your way to Bridlington or Flamborough Head. I'll have more information about exact dates etc., nearer the time.
Pyramid Gallery York
I'm not permanently on show in Pyramid, a lovely gallery right in the heart of York (The white facade above). They currently have one unframed lino print available and are happy to order in anything to view, no obligation.
Only two galleries?
I've been focussed on developing a collection of artworks. Now that I have a good collection (which is still growing), my focus will broaden to include seeking representation and exhibition opportunities, so I'm hoping to add more updates here throughout 2019.
Life sometimes throws nasty things your way with no logic or invitation – lightening strikes doesn't it. It did it to me, in the form of a very serious illness. While I spent a great deal of time in hospital over almost two years and several years getting back up after the knock, my art took a back seat and my gallery representation suffered.
You'll be pleased to know, I'm sure, that I'm very much mended now and have been working obsessively on bringing my art practice back-up to speed. Cracking the proverbial whip on myself, walled-up in my artist's garret painting and printmaking, or out in the landscape with paints and brushes braving strangers, flies and herds of cows.

Success in juried exhibitions
From 2006 to 2013, I entered jury selected shows, called 'Opens', in the region. Including two popular and prestigious annual/bi-annual open submission shows: Ferens Open in Hull and the East Coast Open at Scarborough Art Gallery.
Every time I submitted something, I was selected to be part of the exhibition. This was despite being up against over 500 other artists submitting up to 3 artworks each.
