The print room (kitchen table) was busy and the art gallery (lounge) was full of his and her paintings and prints. A stream of art lovers, hikers, lost folk or people attracted by the blue art installation and the wind chimes, wandered in out of the sun to get their hands dirty (with ink) or recoil at the thought. Printing was demystified and results achieved.
The annual Bewerley Grange Chapel flower festival theme was “Famous Women, Past and Present”
There were floral tributes to Jane Tomlinson, Beryl Burton, Amy Johnson, Florence Nightingale, Emmeline Pankhurst, Grace Darling, Hannah Hawkeswell and others.
Katrina Brayshaw – Angles of Light.
An exhibition of photographs of wild and remote places and other idiosyncratic images at number 6 studio gallery Pateley Bridge.
“Landscape photography became a passion for me some seven years ago, and is really an extension of my lifelong love of the outdoors, and in particular, my love of wild and remote places. The exhibition title, Angles of Light, reflects the critical role of light in the making of a photograph. I hope that will be illustrated by the photographs in this exhibition.”
Bank holiday Monday was the last day of the Nidd Art Trail 2017 and Katrina’s exhibition was busy with locals and visitors coming to see her detailed photographs of wild places.
