Power and the Passion
Ashley Jackson’s Yorkshire Love Affair
Ashley Jackson, Internationally known Yorkshire watercolour landscape artist, celebrates his 70th Birthday this October with an exhibition unveiling over 35 watercolours from his private collection. Commencing at the Mall Galleries, London on the 3rd - 9th October, it will then return to beloved Yorkshire to be exhibited at Temple Newsam House, Leeds on the 23rd October until the 8th May 2011.
It will provide a vision of Yorkshire for all to see and feel as the paintings are extremely atmospheric and of dynamic proportions without resorting to technology - Ashley uses no trickery just pure skill.
Each painting has been chosen for its unique ability to convey the beauty of the landscape of ‘God’s County’ of Yorkshire; these are not picture postcard representations but passionate interpretations of the atmospheric elements. No other watercolour artist has been successful at creating this unique bond – Ashley explains this as an ability to read Mother Nature’s Love Letters.
Ashley will once again be supporting The Prince's Trust with the sale of a Limited edition exhibition brochure from which all finance will be donated to the Trust and also a percentage from any paintings sold. HRH Prince Charles has most generously provided a foreword to the exhibition brochure.
As the exhibition will remain at Temple Newsam House for 7 months we are planning to show in two stages the first being October to Feb with a second catalogue being shown from Feb to May. This is to ensure that Yorkshire is able to view the full exhibition that has been shown at the Mall Galleries London; unfortunately although Temple Newsam provides a majestic setting the Gallery is too small to exhibit all 35 paintings in one viewing.
We hope to meet many of you at the exhibitions come and celebrate with us.
