On Wednesday, December 9, the Revolving Gallery will launch in York. This first show will take place in the recently converted old Chapel building of York St John University.

As part of the event five professional artists from across the country will be brought to the city.

Each of these artists provides a different style to the event, from figurative through to large abstract works. The gallery believe the selection will appeal to a wide and varied audience offering something for everyone’s taste and budget.

The team behind Revolving Gallery want the artwork to be explained, understood and appreciated. Consequently, the artists will be in attendance at the event to talk about their work, as well as their motivation and inspiration.

The line-up includes:

William Bradley – an abstract painter who originally studied in York and was a finalist for the Catlin Prize this year.

Freya Horsley –  an artist who draws atmospheric semi-abstract landscapes that have won her both awards and a loyal group of art collectors. Freya’s multi-layered canvases and pastels take their inspiration from the surrounding moors, mountains and coasts. She has recently enjoyed sell-out shows in London.

Patrick Smith – a printmaker and painter, creates finely crafted monoprints and collagraphs through an inventive range of processes. Patrick enjoys using colour and texture as a device to explore a sense of ‘harmony’ and ‘tension’ in his compositions.  Formally an art tutor, Patrick’s recent successes have led him to pursue his own work full-time.

Paul Stone – a Sheffield based artist, specialises in figurative painting with a specific focus on still life. His precise oils and considered compositions highlight how much beauty everyday objects hold.

Laura Alice – an emerging artist and illustrator based in Saltaire, whose paintings are inspired by nature and organic shapes. Laura’s training in textiles has influenced the way she paints; her works exhibit areas of ‘woven’ texture, repeat-pattern and ‘sheets’ of overlapping colour.

The Revolving Gallery hand-selects individual pieces of artwork, building a reputation for high quality, well-made art that holds its place as an investment.  The gallery ensures the highest standard of materials are used, while providing assurance that works are truly original – highlighting the provenance of each piece and the artists’ tutorage.

There is an opportunity to win £200 worth of art, simply join the gallery’s mailing list via the website. To see more information on Revolving Gallery.

Revolving Gallery will be held at the converted Chapel of York St John University, on Wednesday, December 9 at 7.00pm. Admission is free.
