The end of one year and the beginning of another

Posted by Claudia Jackson-Berettoni on December 31, 2020 (0 Comments)

 


It’s New Year’s Eve
This is a year we will look forward to drawing to a close but there will be a few positives we would like to bring with us in to 2021. Although socially distant we have managed to remain close and we wish to thank you for supporting us as we continued to share our passion for the landscapes of Yorkshire. Nature has brought inner peace to so many through these troubling times and we see so much joy in the simplest of moments ; the sound of crisp snow beneath our feet, morning sunlight streaming through the trees or the colour of Autumn leaves.

Whatever the new normal may be I hope we are able to retain our relationship with the landscape, for I have been truly fortunate to have been able to maintain mine for nearly 70 years and when I stand upon the moors what I see combined with what I feel inspires me to capture the moment in watercolour.

No matter how dark the day , nature always reveals light along the horizon ... stay safe

The gallery may close a little early today please contact us should you be making a late visit.
From January 1st we will be opening between 11am - 3.00 pm Monday - Saturday and look forward to greeting you.

Changes to Christmas Delivery Dates

Posted by Claudia Jackson-Berettoni on December 11, 2020 (0 Comments)

We would like to thank you all for your purchases through the gallery for mail order, your support is truly appreciated. As we get closer to the Big Day we feel we are unfortunately now at a point when we are unable to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas. 

We have moved our postal service up from second class signed for up to first class signed for in the hope of quicker deliveries but as you will understand with the unprecedented year we have had most people have asked for items to be posted out which is understandable but it has caused a slow down in delivery services straining under the pressures of Santa’s gifts.

We will continue to post out items but suggest if you live close enough to collect please call the gallery and we will have your gift wrapped and ready for collection.

Should you wish to be guaranteed Christmas Delivery please email Ashley@ashley-jackson.co.uk so that we can discuss alternative courier services to get your gift to you in good time. 

Thank you for your understanding, we appreciate your custom but the postal delays are unfortunately not something we can control and we don’t wish to be the cause of anyone’s disappointment. 

May we also suggest taking a peak at the downloadable Gift Vouchers which are instantly available and allow the recipient to choose their Yorkshire landscape - a perfect win in the gift choices.

Limited Edition 'Lead me home, Gateway to Yorkshire - Ashley Jackson 2020

I am proud to present, ‘Lead me home, gateway to Yorkshire’ an exclusive signed limited edition of 250 copies.

Lead me home is a celebration of my 80th year, the gateway is a distant memory of a lost boundary, you could choose to walk around it, but it is our natural instinct to open the gate to walk through to feel the damp moorland beneath our feet.

It is a tranquil day, one that you wished you could soar like a bird in the sky with your arms reaching out, for this is as close to an aerial view as is humanly possible.

Look closely, for it is the light on the horizon that fills my soul with hope for what will be, to act as a reminder that even on the darkest days there is always light on the horizon. Mother Nature will always ensure a moment of serenity even in a storm, perhaps this is life's metaphor for I have lived through many storms but have continued to embrace my Yorkshire Mistress for she is the very essence of my soul.

Exclusive Signed Limited Edition of just 250 copies.

Released on the 22nd October in celebration of my 80th birthday it is available to preorder by contacting the gallery on 01484 686460 between 11.00am - 3.00pm Monday to Saturday.

Or visiting the website to order unframed editions for mail order.

  • It might not feel like Christmas at the moment ...

    Posted by Claudia Jackson-Berettoni on September 23, 2020 (0 Comments)

    I know as the nights start to darken a little earlier and we have reached the Autumn Equinox, it doesn’t quite feel like Christmas, but to be honest after the year we  have had so far will we feel like Christmas?

    It is all an unknown at present, but what we do know is that this year the simplest of things have meant the most as we have stayed home to work or shield, missed our loved ones or carried on working in front line jobs.... it has been surreal. 

    This year Christmas cards will connect us all , with the pleasure of receiving post and opening an envelope.... it gives us all hope for better days to come.

    End of the Day when all is calm ...

    Posted by Claudia Jackson-Berettoni on August 06, 2020 (0 Comments)

     

    Yorkshire will be forever ingrained in my heart, I make no apology when David Whetstone from the Journal wrote some years ago;"You feel that if Ashley Jackson were cut in half – God forbid – you would find the word “Yorkshire” running through him like a stick of rock" for he is correct I could no more remove Yorkshire from my soul than I could continue to live without my heart, for they are intertwined and I am blessed because of it.

    The above painting is a limited edition of 'The end of the day when all is calm' ...I think we all need one of these moments, a minute in time when we can find peace in these changing times, to focus on a landscape that has stood through centuries; a Roman fortress and Victorian folly make Castle Hill a historical landmark but more than that it is confirmation to many that they are close to their home. It is a lighthouse in a storm guiding many home across the Holme Valley.

    Making Yorkshire Day super special this year with Forget Me Not

    Posted by Claudia Jackson-Berettoni on August 01, 2020 (0 Comments)

    To celebrate Yorkshire Day, we have donated a framed original pencil sketch, worth £750, to Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

    For some time we’ve been planning to do something unique in partnership with this amazing charity. Unfortunately the coronavirus put pay to that. That’s why, when everything closed down, we asked what can we do?

    We know that with the closure of Forget Me Not’s charity shops and many events being cancelled or held virtually, there will be a shortfall £2million pounds, a drop of nearly half the income they need each year.

    So we wanted to do our bit at this really difficult time to help them raise the funds they need.

    The original artwork, a pencil sketch of Holme Moss, is a celebration of Yorkshire. It also symbolises the ‘home from home’ that the hospice provides for children with life-shortening conditions and their families in West Yorkshire, through end of life care, bereavement support, music therapy, respite care and so much more.

    We hope, by donating this original pencil sketch to mark Yorkshire Day 2020, we can help Forget Me Not continue to care for the children and families who need them most.

    The pencil sketch is due to be auctioned at a future date but if you wish to donate in the meantime to Forget Me Not just head to www.forgetmenotchild.co.uk/donate


    Let's make Yorkshire Day truly a celebration of all things Yorkshire and support by donating or by sharing this post on Facebook so that we can raise as much as possible. Thank you.
