An exhibition of stunning Pennine scenes has been selected for a festival centred around the Tour de France’s Yorkshire stages.
‘A Grand Tour of the South Pennines’ features Holme Valley watercolour artist Jeff Beaumont and photographer Sandie Nicholson, together with Dewsbury-based artist Bruce Mulcahy.
The exhibition, featuring scenes of Holme Valley and the South Pennines, takes place at Holmfirth Civic Hall on July 4 from 6.30pm to 9pm and July 6 to 11 from 11am to 5pm.
The free event was picked for The Yorkshire Festival fringe, organised by Welcome to Yorkshire to tie in with the Tour when it hits Holme Valley, on Sunday.
Jeff Beaumont has been sharing his love of the rural landscape and farmlands on canvas for more than 30 years and has exhibited his work throughout the North of England.
He is fascinated by derelict rural buildings and the methods farmers use to hold things together.
More than 400 of Sandie Nicholson’s photographs, documenting the life and landscapes of the South Pennines, have featured on TV.
As well as the ever-changing weather, she loves to capture humour — and sheep — in her photos.
Bruce Mulcahy creates all of his paintings outdoors so he can react directly to the landscape and the particular colours, textures and light of the moment.
He has exhibited across the country, including at The Mall Galleries, London; Manchester Academy of Fine Arts, the House of Commons, and Leeds City Art Gallery.
