Responses to Nature is an exhibition exploring two different Artists’ observations and portrayals of North Yorkshire; it’s landscape, heritage and wildlife.
New work by Lynn Ward and Jo Garlick explores their responses to the landscape and wildlife within North Yorkshire. Their unique styles complement each other to bring an interesting exhibition of the natural world that inspires them.
Lynn paints in both oil and acrylic and is strongly inspired by the landscapes around her. She likes to portray a sense of movement and light is drawn to contrasts, such as stormy skies or shapes and shadows created by a gate or a stone wall.
Jo works in soft pastels, using it to create vibrant pictures of British wildlife and a broad spectrum of landscapes inspired by the character and heritage of North Yorkshire. She loves the flexibility that pastel offers and enjoys experimenting with different techniques and ideas to portray texture, movement and light.
