Prints exhibition opens at theatre

An exhibition of prints by a Scarborough artist can be seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre from 11 March to 20 April.

Wendy Tate has worked as a full-time artist - painting, printmaking and delivering workshops - since she was made redundant from Scarborough School of Art.

She works predominantly with images of the town. “I walk the beach almost daily and am constantly struck by its power and majesty but also how it can hold our secrets and reflect our mood”, Wendy says.

“So often, my head is low and eyes lower yet the sun catches my eye, perhaps in a rock pool. Light found in the strangest of places brings joy and renewed focus; perhaps a different perspective. I try to capture these moments, which are the starting points of my work”.

Wendy and her partner Rob Moore have paintings in Scarborough Art Gallery’s open exhibition, which runs until 29 April.

Rob is relatively new to the area, having begun to set up studios and printmaking workshops at 4 Alma Square around 18 months ago. He is a professional artist with an impressive track record as an educationalist, lecturer, artist and gallery curator.

Rob and Wendy run printmaking workshops for small groups at Alma Studios.

The creative duo will be showing a few pieces at the Ryedale open exhibition at Hutton le Hole in March and in the Dark Skies show at the Inspire gallery in Danby in March and April. They will have an exhibition of paintings at Inspire in October.
