Running from 6th October to 4th November, Northern Latitudes takes us on an Old Norse journey from Northern Britain to Norway & Greenland, with a collection of stunning, serene, minimalist compositions, by husband and wife team Richard & Janet Burdon.Richard & Janet are well known at The Old School for their monochrome images of Swaledale sheep caught up in winter snowstorms, and Northern Latitudes provides both the opportunity to venture further afield to showcase a wider range of their work, including both monochrome and colour work.Janet & Richard will be at the Old School for the opening of the exhibition on Saturday 6th October.
The tide is receding at the The Yorkshire Coast & Sea Exhibition as it enters its final two weeks, and we’ve put up new work to take us through to the end of the exhibition including: Whitby Snowstorm by Paul Berriff (above), Filey Beach by John Harrison, Staithes Harbour by John Wood, and Scarborough Spa and Whitby Pier by Richard and 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.
