Podcast Interviews with Northern Artists

Often viewed set apart, there is something unquestionably special and inspirational in the land and landscape in the North of England, not just when represented in painting but often more subconsciously in heart and mind.
Recognising that inspiration is the wellspring of creativity we explore views of the North with those who made it the bedrock of their careers.

EXHIBITION: Peter Brown ‘Paintings of Harrogate’

19 March – 1 May

One of the greatest plein-air painters of our time, Peter Brown, has braced the snow and lockdown to capture the beauty of Harrogate.
Brown, who is President of the New English Art Club, first became captivated by the distinct character of urban architecture and how it affects human interaction in Bath, where he lives.

EXHIBITION: Tif Hunter ‘Colour Stills’

20 March – 1 May

For his debut Harrogate exhibition, Tif Hunter combines selections of his still life work from seemingly opposing parts of his photographic career: a group of monochrome tintypes – reproduced here in high-definition print editions – and a collection of colour digital prints.

EXHIBITION: Brian Taylor ‘Portraits & Animalia’

20 March – 1 May

We are delighted to present a remarkable body of sculpture and rare drawings from the renowned sculptor Brian Taylor.

EXHIBITION: Graeme Black ‘Trunk Show’

7 May – 19 June

Graeme Black’s paintings come from a life of looking for ways to connect what he sees with what he feels, the materiality of objects seen with the sensations of forms experienced.

EXHIBITION: Elliot Walker ‘Plenty’

25 June – 7 August

We are delighted to present Elliot Walker’s debut solo show at Messums Yorkshire. Plenty is an irreverent look at our culture of excess, a new series of sculpture inspired by Dutch 17th Century Vanitas paintings.
