A Joint exhibition featuring printmaker Anna Tosney and ceramicist Emmeline Butler. This first collaboration between these artists will showcase the best of the Yorkshire Dales – its landscape, tradition and people. The exhibition will feature prints depicting the people, agriculture and wildlife of the Yorkshire Dales, and ceramics reflecting the natural textures of limestone pavements for which the Dales is well known.
Anna specialises in drypoint, collograph and monoprint techniques. Her inspiration comes from the world around her: the changing weather and seasons, the animals in the fields, the birds in the trees, the farmers and drystone wallers at work.
Emmeline works with tactile and textured ceramics. Like Anna she is inspired by her love of nature, the countryside and the beauty of its many textures. Cracked limestone pavemen ts, tree bark, dry exposed peat, and the moorland heather are reflected in the surface patterns of her work.
