The Great North Art Show
Ripon Cathedral: 3 – 25 September 2016
The Great North Art Show features 300 artworks by 50 of the UK’s finest contemporary painters, sculptors, printmakers and photographers, all displayed in the fabulous setting of Ripon Cathedral.
Discover exciting new talent showcased alongside more established artists in this popular exhibition which showcases the wealth of talent in the North of England. The scale of the cathedral allows for a collection of work to be shown by each artist rather than simply an individual piece.
This breathtaking array of art will range from brilliantly realised bronze equine heads by sculptor Joseph Hayton who originally trained as a stonemason, to the conceptual screenprinted illustrations of Katie Edwards and stunning black and white photography which reflects Lucy Saggers’ fascination with rural life capturing the ordinary moments that often go unseen. This is also an opportunity to view a body of work by guest artist, printmaker Catherine Sutcliffe Fuller, including pieces created during her residency for Hiscox Insurance, through which she has been documenting the clearance of a historical site and construction of a new and modern office building in York since 2014.
The 2016 Great North Art Show opens on Saturday 3 September and runs until Sunday 25 September. Entry to the Cathedral and exhibition is free and all artworks are for sale.
