21st Century British Landscape opens on 31 October featuring new works by Deborah Grice, Amelia Humber, Emerson Mayes and James Naughton.

James Naughtons work is inspired by light, landscape and the nature of paint. Combining these elements, his resulting works link both core elements of traditional painting with that of the modern world.

Emerson Mayes’ paintings reflect the flora and fauna of the British landscape. Emerson’s passion for these vast and complex subjects explore the boundaries between representation and the physical act of painting.

Amelia Humber produces atmospheric, responsive paintings and drawings of the natural landscape which she immerses herself in. Often working on location, Amelia captures moments in time of her immediate feelings in response to a continuously changing landscape.

Thanks so much to Zillah Bell Gallery who have awarded the Zillah Bell Printmakers Prize to ACROSS BORGE BAY, an etching by Ian Brooks.

Here's what gallery owner John Bell had to say about their choice:

"Ian Brooks’ aquatints are delicate yet manage to catch the mass and majesty of the Arctic landscapes he knows so well. It’s the perfect match of medium and subject matter."

Well done Ian and thanks so much to Zillah Bell Gallery for your support.

A rare investment opportunity

We have been instructed by a client to sell Norman Ackroyd CBE RA: St Kilda Revisited Boxset (2010) - the highly sought after suite of ten etchings.

The etchings are all approximately 17.5 x 28 cm and are presented in a handmade solander case with additional supporting material. Fifty boxsets were made and were all purchased by national institutions and private collectors. Three of the aquatints in the set are long out of edition of 90 prints and so unavailable in the primary market.

Norman Ackroyd has made several trips to St Kilda and regards the island as one of the sites that has inspired him the most.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an important work from an internationally respected artist. The price is £4,500. DM us if you are interested. @ Zillah Bell Gallery

Last week to buy a wonderful piece of art from Zillah Bell Gallery and help the people of Ukraine. There are pieces to suit all budgets and tastes, so please dig deep and help if you can.
‘Music gives us lasting memories’ is one of the paintings in the Zillah Bell Gallery UKRAINIAN FUNDRAISER exhibition on until 9th April. If you wish to own a lovely piece of artwork, you can choose from some wonderful artists work and at the same time you will be contributing to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). Do contact www.zillahbellgallery.co.uk
‘Tameidiau Ohona’i’, Emma Lloyd. Emma won the Printmaker Prize, sponsored by Zillah Bell Gallery, as part of the 2013/14 Prize Exhibition. She has always been interested in materials and the connotations they have. Her piece ‘Lockdown 2.0’ is part of the Northern Lights Retrospective at Saul Hay Gallery. The piece investigates the impact recent events have had on our way of communicating. Using a book highlighting the importance of grandparents, Emma explores the weight of the virus for the vulnerable and wider society. Northern Lights starts 26/03-17/04 at Saul Hay Fine Art, Manchester. #newlight #newlightart #prizeexhibition #printmakingart #printmakingartist #northernartist #northernart #normanackroyd #saulhayfineart #saulhaygallery #manchestergallery #manchesterexhibition #wordartist #paperartwork #lockdownart #artretrospective #artexhibitions #exhibition2022
The paintings available through Zillah Bell Gallery’s UKRAINIAN FUNDRAISER ‘Help Art Save Lives’ are available online too. The gallery are donating all of their commission from the sales of all of these artworks, and I am donating all of the monies I would normally receive from the sale of ‘Little Yellow Bird.’ There are artworks for all tastes and budgets!
UKRAINE – FUNDRAISING EXHIBITION FOR UKRAINE RELIEF starts today at Zillah Bell Gallery in Thirsk. 100% of the price paid for my painting Little Yellow Bird will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee by the gallery. The exhibition dates are 12th March - 9th April Here's an opportunity to treat yourself to a beautiful artwork and also generate a substantial donation to relieve suffering in Ukraine. ‘Thanks to the extreme generosity of our artists we are launching an exhibition across a wide range of styles and media - so there is something to suit every taste and budget. 100% of the gallery’s proceeds from sales will be donated with an extra percentage from the artists.’ I am so proud of John Bell and the team, helping art to save lives.
Also delivered to the superb Zillah Bell Gallery in Thirsk last week. Little Yellow Bird, mixed media and collage.
I delivered this mixed media collage Two Yellow Birds to the wonderful Zillah Bell Gallery this week. It was super to catch up with John and Beverley as always, and wander around Thirsk’s lovely independent shops and cafes.
'Love is a silent melody' Opus 336 has SOLD from the Zillah Bell Gallery in Thirsk. So pleased that this image based on the North Yorkshire Moors has gone to a new home! There is something about moorland colours don't you think?!
Wedding galleries being finished off this week....... Here's a SUPER LONG preview for you of Tasha and Tom who married at Thirsk Hall and gardens and how beautiful it was....... So in love with this wedding...... so much to capture and lots of opportunities..... Are you marrying in 2022? or 2023? Please do drop me a message if you fancy a bit of Wooden Hill wedding magic in your life.....
I am really thrilled to have these four paintings on show and available to buy in the Zillah Bell Gallery summer exhibition. This wonderful gallery in Thirsk is open, and full of amazing art by some of Yorkshire’s finest artists. I hope that you really enjoy your visit to the gallery and this lovely rural market town.
So pleased that 'A rhythm for the soul' SOLD from the Zillah Bell Gallery. Happy to be delivering some new work there tomorrow! A nice trip up to North Yorkshire!
You wait months for an exhibition to open and then... - This was going to be a post about how delighted I was to say that the exhibition '21st Century Landscapes' had opened at Zillah Bell Gallery But after Saturday's announcement it's quickly become a post banging the drum about visiting quickly before the exhibition has to close due to this week's lockdown. - The gallery is open Mon - Wed, 10 -1 and 2 -5. Go on, get a bit of art appreciation into your veins before you're back staring at your walls/TV for a month! - Unfortunately the gallery doesn't have any way on seeing/buying the work online at the moment, but I know they are busy behind the scenes trying to rectify this. Therefore here are the works I have on show and if any do catch your eye just drop Bev and Lucy an email as I'm sure they'd be delighted to hear from you. - The show also features work by Amelia Humber, Deborah Grice and my good friend James Naughton, so is a real feast for the eye of any lover of landscape painting. - - - - - - - #art #artcollector #artcollect #instaart #ontheeasel #landscapepainting #landscape #oilpainting #oilstudy #oil #painting #contemporaryart #collectart #commissionart #lifeofanartist #artist #artistsoninstagram #artiststories #artgallery #gallery #picturegallery #emersonmayes #oilonboard #yorkshire #pleinair #pleinairpainting #contemporarylandscape#kunst#lockdownexhibition 1h
