Dales artists exhibit at The Station

Artist Judith Bromley.

An exhibition by Dales artists Judith Bromley and Robert Nicholls will start in the Artisan Gallery at The Station, Richmond, tomorrow.

The artists say the exhibition highlights Dales moorlands and the important role they play in the fight against climate change.

Under the auspices of the Books and Boots Festival, Judith will be giving an introduction about how her book, Climb up to the Moor, developed and then became a touring exhibition.

The illustrated talk will be on September 23 from 11am to 12am.

Tickets cost £5.

Launched at The Dales Countryside Museum, the highly acclaimed touring exhibition was then hosted by The Station, and venues in the Lake District and Peak District, before finally becoming a successful selling exhibition at Tennants in Leyburn.

This current exhibition will feature prints of paintings from the first exhibition and some new work.

Judith said: “I have been walking and exploring the moors for some years, drawing, painting, and taking notes.

“What began as a book to follow on from my other two books, Step into the Meadow and Come down to the Wood, grew into a much bigger vision. The climate change debate is high on the agenda now.

“The more time I spent up on the moorland with the calls of curlew and lapwing, the more I rediscovered my true relationship with the changing of the seasons, the turning of the earth, and the more passionate I became about caring for our precious jewel of a planet.”
