Yorkshire’s Coast & Sea, John Harrison

Our final (final) post profiling artists in the Yorkshire Coast & Sea exhibition focusses on Drawn in Yorkshire’s John Harrison, whose style will be familiar to all those who visit our small (but perfectly formed) gallery in upper Swaledale and to the tens of thousands of readers of the Dalesman Magazine that John features in each month.

Down the Hill into the Village | John Harrison

John’s line and wash style perfectly complements the houses and cottages that huddle together for protection in the villages dotting our stunning coastline, and a superbly  judged balance of colour and simple line drawing (as exemplified by the featured image, Shadow on Church Street) allows the viewers imagination to fill in the gaps and complete the picture.

At the Old School Muker we’re very pleased to showcase John’s paintings in our main gallery and in the Yorkshire’s Coast & Sea exhibition, and extremely proud to be hosting a solo exhibition of John’s work in July 2018.
