Yorkshire’s Coast & Sea – Richard & Janet Burdon

Richard & Janet Burdon are already well known to customers of the Old School for their monochrome images of the iconic Swaledale tups and ewes found on the fells surrounding our gallery, often caught in the midst of a snowstorm. What our visitors don’t know is that they’re equally at home discovering and capturing, serene, minimalist, compositions of Yorkshire’s coastline, not far from their home in Pickering, such as The Promenade (featured image).

It is these images that will feature in out Yorkshire’s Coast & Sea Exhibition, offering a reflective, almost zen-like perspective on our wonderful coastline.

I feel more calm and relaxed just looking and writing about them!

In October Richard & Janet will return to the Old School for our last exhibition of 2018, to showcase both their colour and monochrome work from the Northern latitudes. More on this to follow.
