We were invited to the opening of Mark Hearld‘s exhibition at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park last week and squeezed ourselves around a very crowded gallery. We went again today so that we could get a proper look. We took our thirteen year old daughter Lily, who is really interested in all types of art. The light there was beautiful today and it would have been nice to have had the time to walk around the lovely grounds.
Last weekend we visited the open studios of Mark Hearld and Emily Sutton in York. The opening was in their own house and we saw so many interesting and inspirational things. As artists, we have collected and hoarded all sorts of objects and curiosities over the years, and we immediately felt at home there. There were a lot of people looking around and almost everything had sold by lunchtime. We bought two paintings by Emily Sutton and they were quite happy for Andrew to take pictures around their house for this blog.
We are going over again on Sunday to collect the work and spend a bit more time in York, one of our favourite Cities.
