Lost in the Landscape

13th Jul 18 – 11th Aug 18

| An exhibition of digital collage and mono prints by Carolyn Hird=Rogers

'Lost’, a winter project: "During the winter months 2017-18 my attention was drawn to the many abandoned gloves, usually alone without their partner, seen around the streets and parks of Skipton. I was struck by how lonely and un-loved they looked, lying in the gutter or trampled into the mud. I started documenting them, photographing them, noting their location. Most were dark and gloomy, but every so often there would be a patch of bright colour, cheerful and happy in their predicament, optimistically draped over a railing or balanced on a stick, hoping to catch their owners eye and to once more snuggle up to their pair."

‘In the Landscape’, a spring and summer project: "Inspired by the dramatic landscape, colours and quality of light of the Dales and Moors National Parks, plus an interest in 1950s Scandinavian pattern design has led to the development of this new body of original landscape images."

The Celestial landscape


31st Mar 18 – 28th Apr 18

| In the first of a series of exhibitions in collaboration with Craven Arts, Bridget Tempest is showing series of lithographs inspired by French poet Yves Bonnefoy’s 1972 prose work, The Arriere-pays.

As described by Harry Eyres, “ The arriere-pays for Bonnefoy is not somewhere you could find on a map, but a place that might have been, or might still be: it is the land that lurks around the corner, just beyond the end of the road, or down the road you did not take”

Northern England Friends of BADART

7th Oct 17 – 4th Nov 17

The BADART project was set up in 2016. It is an international organisation. In the editorial of its first journal it stated, “We want to fight for access to the arts for all. We want to protect art’s freedom to be itself, whatever genre it falls into. But above all we want to fight for a world where art, artists and all working people can truly flourish.”

Dedicated to fighting against the closure of libraries, museums, community projects and other public sector services, the participants in this exhibition provide thought provoking and challenging ideas. Additionally, this show also confronts our general perceptions in regard to such concepts as “Socialist art” or “Socialist Realism.”

Bringing together a variety of participants, including artists who have exhibited in London and International galleries, there are others who are exhibiting locally for the first time.

Using a wide range of visual mediums, including paintings, cartoons, and sculptural boxes, this show displays a variety of styles and processes.

The preview of the exhibition is on the 6th October from 6.30pm. The artists will be present on the evening. Please contact the gallery for more information.

Imagined Urbanscapes

11th Jun 16 – 16th Jul 16

| Imagined Urbanscapes features Daniel Shiel’s latest photographic work; a response to psychogeographical adventures into forgotten and overlooked urban landscapes and the wastelands at the border of urban and rural environments.

Daniel extracts specific details from photographic images, isolates them from their original context and combines them into fresh and unfamiliar landscapes. The resulting structures have a surreal quality and become remote landscapes and settings of questionable and unsettling perspective and narrative.

‘This is an artist that is intrigued by aspects of our lives, our communities, our environment, places that seem to remain largely invisible to us, whether as objects, structures, or parts of structures. He explores places that seem to so easily become part of the overlooked, the unseen, and in many cases, the unseeing.’

John Hopper (Inspirational 9, 2016)

Imagined Urbanscapes

Dales of a Perilous Realm

27th Feb 16 – 9th Apr 16

An exhibition of work by artist John Cockshaw.

Inspired by the epic writing of JRR Tolkien, this collection of digital photomontage supplemented by occasional drawings presents a very subtle approach to the subject of Fantasy. The dramatic force of nature and the characteristics of a given landscape are emphasised over fantastic events or characters. The frame of reference is 19th Century Romantic Painting, a lush sense of the cinematic and a loving tribute to Yorkshire beauty spots.

Guest contributor and Archaeologist Shaun Richardson exhibits detailed 'invented' archaeological drawings of Middle-earth that make reference to locations in The Yorkshire Dales

Dales of a Perilous Realm

Lane and Towpath; The Past's Influence on the Present.

17th Oct 15 – 28th Nov 15

|A solo exhibition by skipton artist Carolyn Hird-Rogers.

Initially trained and working as a ceramic designer, Carolyn's love of line and structure has led to her developing a digital drawing style. Inspired by the semi-rural environment of Skipton on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, images emerge from the landscape to be re-created on greeting cards and framed prints, capturing the essence of the wild beauty found here. Her exhibition at Mill Bridge Gallery developed from images taken over a period of time along one particular track. Running alongside the Leeds - Liverpool canal it was an ancient route for the monks of centuries past to travel along, and its wild plants and animals feature in her current work.
