An exhibition by members of Leeds Fine Artists (one of the oldest regional arts bodies in the UK), showing a direct personal response to Yorkshire landscapes, especially the North York Moors - whether abstract, figurative or sensory.

Leeds Fine Artists (LFA) is one of the oldest and most prestigious regional arts organisations in the north of England. There are over fifty exhibiting members who work in a wide variety of media in two and three-dimensional visual arts. Here, selected members show a direct personal response to North Yorkshire landscapes – whether abstract, figurative or sensory.

Sharron Astbury-Petit
Sharron’s work is characterised by experimentation and a combining of media to better explore different themes, interweaving disciplines to create a singular and evolving reality. Largely figurative and rich in symbolism, her recurrent subjects are nature, woman, time and immortality.

Trevor Pittaway
Trevor is a painter who works in oil, acrylic, watercolour and egg tempera. He is also a printmaker, producing etchings, mono-prints and digital prints. Trevor’s work is a contemporary comment on the timeless beauty of the natural landscape and the built environment, and his inspiration ranges from the historic architecture of Venice to the English country landscape.

Sue Atkinson
Painting is Sue’s meditation, with en plein air painting a particular pleasure, especially on the beach. In the studio Sue adjusts, enlarges and embellishes from on-site sketches or photos. Or she just paints from her imagination.

Jill Campbell
Jill is inspired by the wild and beautiful scenery of the north. She is fascinated by the strange, other-worldly, abstract shapes defined by morning shadows and framed by big dramatic skies. Jill decides which shapes and colours to play with, then draws and applies layers of paint until she finds balance, whereupon a lyrical, painterly world emerges which celebrates the landscape.
