This Autumn, Bootham’s Blue Tree gallery is set to offer York aesthetes a colourful distraction from the pall of grey settling over the streets in that lugubrious lull which characterizes the pause between heady late Summer and the first LED-lit glimmers of the festive season. In a new exhibition running from October 15 to November 17, the gallery is set to bring arresting shades and dreamy forms to one corner of the muted Bootham landscape through works by four women painters, Sue Atkinson, Giuliana Lazzerini, Claire West and Sharon Winter, alongside complementary pieces of sculpture, ceramics, glass-work and jewelry.
You’ll be able to visit the exhibition free of charge throughout it’s entire duration – the Blue Tree gallery opens from 10AM until 5.30PM Monday til Saturday and is closed on Sundays. Our contact at the gallery Gordon Giarchi suggests a visit to the exhibition would be ideal for “a rainy day, payday, all the family, those on a budget, those with only an hour to spare, the weekend, a morning walk, a weekend in the city, an introduction to York, a cultural awakening”… Well of course he’d say all that, but on the strength of the pictures he sent us along with the gallery’s press release he’s pretty much right on all accounts.
