THE latest exhibition at Mill Bridge Gallery by three artists who have chosen to make Yorkshire their home celebrates the beauty of our surroundings.

Sarah Roche is an artist working in felt. Although she has always been a very creative person Sarah wouldn’t naturally have described herself as an artist, until she moved with her family to the Yorkshire Dales. When a good friend introduced her to wool as an alternative medium it was like a lightbulb moment. Using a variety of wool products: Merino wool tops, Blue-faced Leicester curls and wool nepps, she works to imitate and ultimately pay homage to the beauty and the mood of this utterly captivating part of the world.

Also displaying is Christine Yardley, an artist who uses photography and specialises in historic photographic processes. She is inspired and motivated by nature and the mystical and magical elements and energies of nature and life, imagination and transformation.

Marisa Marquez made Skipton her home 8 years ago. She was born in Morocco, and lived in Spain and Majorca, sailing the world for many years. Her mixed media paintings are inspired by her great love of Yorkshire and the beauty of the light and nature in local spaces.

Sarah, Christine and Marisa hope you will visit their exhibition Thursdays-Saturdays at 3 Mill Bridge, Skipton, to celebrate the beauty of Yorkshire with them. The exhibition is open 11am until 4pm from July 1 to 26.
