Rae Fineron

Blue Light Gallery, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, Ripon HG4 4DY
10:00 - 15:00

York-born jeweller Rae has been creating unique silver jewellery in North Yorkshire since 2006. She enhances silver’s natural beauty through creating shape, form and texture, occasionally adding colour through jet, gemstones or accents of gold or copper. She uses basic tools to create her jewellery which gives an individual and organic feel to her work. She hand makes every jewellery piece to give a unique and personal touch to it. She is proud of continuing this ancient craft in a traditional way where the skill is very much based on knowing how to use the tools of the trade well.
Rae’s exhibition runs from Saturday 16th March until 12th April 2019.
The Blue Light Gallery is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-3pm. For more information about future exhibitions or if you would like to exhibit, please contact The Blue Light Gallery at the Community Office, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, HG4 4DY or call 01765 680 200 or e-mail: info@visitmasham.com.

Clare Dean and Jackey Brown

Blue Light Gallery, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, Ripon HG4 4DY
10:00 - 15:00

Jackey paints in a variety of mediums. She loves the countryside and paints animals and landscape. Clare is a mixed media artist and finds inspiration from nature and her love of gardening. She particularly likes exploring textural work, using her own handmade paper, dried seeds, petals and any other material of interest. A lot of her work is made using acrylic inks which have a looseness and unpredictability.
Clare and Jackey’s exhibition runs from 16th March-10th May 2019.
The Blue Light Gallery is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-3pm. For more information about future exhibitions or if you would like to exhibit, please contact The Blue Light Gallery at the Community Office, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, HG4 4DY or call 01765 680 200 or e-mail: info@visitmasham.com.

Skyscapes Watercolours

Blue Light Gallery, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, Ripon HG4 4DY
10:00 - 15:00

Robert Austin lives near Darlington, an area which experiences a wide variety of weather conditions! His original paintings result from the fusion of his long-standing interests in meteorology, particularly the study of clouds (nephology) and watercolour painting. Robert used to paint skies in oils, but now consider watercolours to be an ideal medium to capture the forms, textures and subtle colours of skyscapes. In general, he uses ‘wet on wet’ and ‘lifting out’ watercolour techniques, using rough textured paper.

Robert’s exhibition runs from Saturday 16th March to Friday 10th May 2019 (closed on Sundays)

David Teece Fused & Stained Glass

Blue Light Gallery, 7 Little Market Place, Masham, Ripon HG4 4DY
10:00 - 15:00

David Teece lives in Masham with his Garden Studio adjacent to his home. His interest in glass developed after seeing the work of a friend and this led to a short course with ArtisOn in stained glass. He then considered other forms of glass art and this eventually led to an inspirational Summer School at Glasgow School of Art. He has captured a little of what makes this part of Yorkshire so special and the series of Dales landscapes exhibited continues to challenge him as he finds new ways of capturing what makes them unique.
David also takes commissions – gardenstudiomasham@gmail.com.
This exhibition runs from 16th February – 10th May 2019 (closed on Sundays).

Food for Thought – Supper & Talk

Saint Mary's Church, Masham,
19:00 - 21:30

Michelle Moyle: ‘The Sharakat Project’
Michell Moyle has worked at the Sharakat Project as Project Coordinator for 5 years. The Sharakat Project is the outreach project of Saint Paul’s Church, Manningham. The project aims to serve and build capacity in the local community in a way that fosters well-being, includes the marginalised and encourages cross cultural and cross faith neighbourly relationships. The local community is one of acute social and economic disadvantage; it is one of the most deprived parishes in the country ranking 12689 out of 12775 parishes on deprivation scales. The majority of local residents are Mirpuri Pakistani heritage with minorities of white British, Indian, Bangladeshi and a growing number of Eastern European heritages. There are also increasing numbers of asylum seekers and refugees moving into the area. There is a lack of relationship between communities and tensions exist. The church, although a minority presence, is one of the few organisations well placed to bring people together and help to build trusting relationships, working together for community wellbeing. They bring people together through a number of different community groups that run through the week enabling friendships to be established across barriers of faith and culture.
