WHERE? Yorkshire Dales landscapes – art from Lucia Smith

29th July@10:00 am - 31st July@5:00 am BST


Ilkley artist Lucia Smith is on a journey to paint all the named Dales of the Yorkshire Dales National Park (YDNP). There are 49 in total, and she has painted 45 so far!

The very latest of these are to be exhibited in Ilkley at the end of July, in an intriguing show asking us ‘WHERE?’.

‘Exploring all the nooks and crannies of the YDNP has been wonderful! I wonder how many folk know of Apedale, or Barbondale, or weird and magical Mossdale? Finding them, walking in them and capturing them each in a painting has been a joy.’

Lucia will be on hand to chat about all these places and her paintings of them throughout the 3 day weekend. She will also have a painting in progress on her easel and be ready to demonstrate some of her unusual soft pastel techniques.

The show includes her latest original Dale paintings, pieces from her fine art print range and her new affordable mini-prints.
