Waiting to Unveil....

Posted by Claudia Jackson-Berettoni on September 28, 2011 (0 Comments)

 

The New limited edition  "COMING HOME BEFORE THE RAIN” – Brontë Moorland near Haworth has finally arrived at the Gallery in Holmfirth and we are excited to be unveiling the framed and mounted version on Saturday 1st October in its full entirety.

After the open moorland of "When the Wind Blows" released two years ago Ashley has returned to what he does best a moody dynamic sky and an open gateway leading to a place of shelter from the prevailing rain. You could imagine Heathcliffe and Cathy being caught out by the speed of the change in the weather and seeking sanctuary from the rain and the rest of the world by the side of a warm fire within the farm house.

 Ashley will be within the Gallery to unveil the Limited edition, answer any question and should you wish to purchase sign the back of your Limited Edition with a sketch. We look forward to you joining us.

Ashley helps put Yorkshire in the frame by utilising a different colour palette than that of his beloved Yorkshire to paint the Arts of Yorkshire Garden at Chelsea Flower Show, London.

As guest of Welcome to Yorkshire, Ashley enthralled the visitors to the Garden which included a sculpture by Barbara Hepworth and the colour palette of David Hockney as the basis for the colours of flowers chosen. It was truly a fantastic day with large numbers of the RHS members viewing Ashley as he painted in the sunshine, whilst promoting the Arts of Yorkshire.
