Masham artist exhibits work at The Station

Jo Garlick at work.

The Station in Richmond will host talented local artist Jo Garlick for a seasonal wildlife and landscape exhibition this month.

Jo, an artist based near Masham, works predominately in pastel and is very much influenced by the Dales.

Her work features local wildlife and local landscapes, inspired by the character and heritage of the area.

This story continues after the adverts:

 

A keen interest in both history and walking means that many of the landscapes she is interested in look at life and industry in the Yorkshire Dales, especially farming and lead mining.

The Station is a fitting place to display these works as it was initially built in 1846 to transport lead ore from the lead mines in Swaledale.

Jo said: “I am fascinated by the way the landscape has been shaped by this industry and what was once a hive of industrial activity is now being reclaimed by nature.

“The wildlife is amazing to watch and continues to thrive and survive in these sometime harsh, bleak places.”

This is Jo’s first solo show at the Station after exhibiting there successfully with groups on a number of occasions.

Jo’s exhibition runs at the Station runs until October 18.

The exhibition then moves to the Blue light Gallery in Masham from October 21 to November 3.
