ARTISTS are back at the Craven Arts Hub, exhibiting their work at the dedicated Craven Arts Hub, in Skipton.

The work of Bev Parker, landscape and agrarian artist; Joan Newall, artist and bookmaker; Anna Hewlett, landscape and floral artist; and Rebecca Carr, artist and illustrator, was due to form an exhibition in the autumn, but had to be abandoned after just a few days because of the coronavirus lockdown.

Bev Parker, of Cum-bye arts, is inspired by the upland environment and landscapes and also likes to paint native breeds of sheep and other farm animals.

Rebecca Carr says her art is like ‘open sketchbook pages, personal moments of contented connection between artist and canvas’

Anna Hewlett is a self-taught, award winning watercolour artist whose work has sold at Liberty’s and Harrods.

Joan Newall lives and works in Skipton, is an artist book maker, and teaches courses and workshops in Pateley Bridge and throughout North Yorkshire.

Artist in residence for May is Jonathan Britten, who will be working on a series of 40 paintings, titled ‘the elementals’ over the month.

Jonathan, from Laycock, Keighley, will be working in the hub, and will be able to talk to visitors, with Covid safety measures in place.

The exhibition at the Hub, in the former TSB Bank, Caroline Square, runs until May 8 on market days, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 11.30am to 3.30pm.
