ARTISTS Nicole Dickinson and Howard Gardiner’ s joint exhibition ‘A Moment in Time’ runs at Skipton’s Mill Bridge Gallery until Saturday November 13.

Nicole who lives near Elslack Moor, is inspired by what she sees around her.

She is fascinated by the sky and its atmospheric influence on the landscape.

While walking with her dog, sketchbook, and camera, she takes time to explore and capture special moments.

And, back in her studio, using her feeling, memory, and imagination, she starts to work straight away with paint brushes and other media to recreate the fleeting changes and colours in the landscape.

She says she wants to communicate her emotional response to a particular place in a moment in time.

Howard’s work is mainly produced in stoneware and earthenware using a variety of ceramic techniques, throwing and hand building mainly one-off pieces which are influenced by a variety of historical ceramic connections.

“Under lockdown I have been studying world ceramics from the British Museum and reference books to inspire me on my quest to understand pottery from past civilisations,” he says.

“My work uses clay slips and glazes and oxides which I make up from tried and tested recipes.”

The gallery is open 11am to 4 pm Thursday to Saturday. Nicole and Howard are in the gallery to welcome visitors on each Friday during the exhibition.
