Blue Light Gallery Exhibition: at Little Market Place. Open daily 10am to 3pm except Sundays. Gill Kirk is exhibiting for the month of October. She works in a variety of mediums and experiments with combinations of different media, currently experimenting with collagraph prints with hand stitch. Gill likes to layer and over-paint to add to the texture and complexity of surface pattern. Her work is informed by her obsessive photography and love of colour, patterns and texture translated from her interest in textiles. She has a life-long appreciation of flowers, nature organic forms and the landscape of the Dales. Art work is usually conceived from photographs and still life on the kitchen table. 01765 680 200.
