Skiptonia with Starlings

I'm delighted to announce that my new work Skiptonia with Starlings is now on show at the Mill Bridge Gallery in Skipton, North Yorkshire

Art in the Pen is a contemporary art fair set in a cattle auction in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Each of the 100 professional artists is given a cattle pen to transform into a mini art gallery in which to sell his/her original works of art.

The first Art in the Pen had a successful launch in 2006 and saw over 3,000 visitors to the cattle mart to witness the selected exhibitors of art. The event keeps growing in size and volume, with 4,500 people enjoying Art in the Pen 2012 where sales of art reached £54,000. Items ranged from £1 to £2,000.

The event is a lovely opportunity to informally meet local artists through to international artists. The work comes not only from a wide geographical range, but also a diverse mix of artistic backgrounds and specialisms. Art in the Pen features the very best of Modern, Conceptual and Contemporary Art in this friendly and innovative venue on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Art in the Pen will guide you through the labyrinth of cattle pens as the animals have been exchanged for Art to view and buy. Whether you are an experienced collector or buying for the first time, Art in the Pen provides a wonderful opportunity for buyers to be the first to discover the many new and emerging talents amongst established and flourishing artists.


Aesthetica Art Prize

MALAKOFF selected as one of one hundred pieces of work projected onto the walls of St Mary's in York at THE AESTHETICA ART PRIZE EXHIBITION

8 March – 28 April 2013: Free admission

Showcasing innovative and outstanding pieces, the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition features shortlisted works from artists in the following categories: Photographic and Digital Art; Three Dimensional Design and Sculpture; Painting and Drawing, and Video, Installation and Performance.
The medieval backdrop of York St Mary’s, York Art Gallery’s contemporary art space, provides a unique setting for the exhibition, challenging the notion of the white cube and inspiring a dialogue between the historic and the contemporary.
This show highlights artistic talent from locations including the USA, South Korea, Australia, Denmark and the UK. From thousands who entered, eight have been selected for exhibition and the work of a further 100 is projected within the space. This offers visitors an opportunity to experience the international breadth, and appreciate the range and quality of the work.
We would like to thank all of the artists involved and extend our gratitude to our partners and sponsors, including York St John University, The Hepworth Wakefield, Awol Studios, Lawrence Art Supplies, Prestel and 1331.
