Sculpt is a new kind of art experience coming to Masham and six other local churches in North Stainley, West Tanfield, Well, Snape, Healey and Mickley from 25th May to 21st September 2019.
Each church will have a site-specific artwork installed by an international, innovative and inspirational artist answering the brief ‘A Response to Space’. Exciting, theatrical, family-friendly and perhaps shocking installations will be found in each church. A route map can be picked up in any of the churches. Expect the enexpected. A trail of dramatic art installations. Entrance is FREE
This art project has been made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council, the Jerusalem Trust, All Churches Trust, Skipton Hire Centres and the Himalayan Garden.

Emma Spick and Rod Birchall

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

Emma Spick began ‘painting’ with wool following a course in wet-felting at the Artison studios in Masham. Emma lives and works in the Yorkshire Dales and many of her wool ‘paintings’ are inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape and wildlife. She works with wool from local producers wherever possible, using different fleece types to create texture and depth. Many of her pictures include wool locks from a local flock of Wensleydale sheep. Pictures are first wet-felted to create a pre-felt background and then detail is added using needle-felting techniques. More work can be found at: www.emmaspick.co.uk or on Facebook at ‘Emma Spick, Felt Art and Bespoke cards’

Yorkshire based, Rod Birchall took up art in 2014. He built up a range of skills by attending a variety of evening classes and workshops. He is now a member of the Harrogate & Nidderdale Art Group.
Rod likes to experiment with a range of media, not necessarily following conventions, often mixing and layering to bring the best of everything to the paintings
Never denying the influence of the impressionists, Rod aims to capture the essence of light and colour offered up by the ever changing natural world.

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.

Amanda Newell

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

Amanda has been producing a wide variety of quirky birds and animals in copper foil stained glass for the last eight years, after taking evening classes at a local college. Living in Beverley, in East Yorkshire, the stunning landscapes, and huge array of wildlife are the driving force behind Amanda’s work, inspiring her to produce British birds and wildlife in unusual streaky and textured art glasses that accurately reflect the subject. Each piece is unique due to the qualities of the glass and are made by hand from start to finish. The process of copper foil technique itself is a lengthy one. Once Amanda has designed a pattern to be used as a template, each piece of glass is hand-cut, the edges then smoothed with the aid of a grinder, before copper foil tape is applied to all sides of the pieces. The design can then be arranged on a board and hand soldered together to create the bird or animal. Finally they are mounted onto a waxed wooden base, which allows them to be displayed anywhere in the home. Amanda now produces a range of heirloom stained glass Christmas decorations, using her trademark textured and streaky glasses, catching the light perfectly. As Amanda designs all her own patterns, commissions are welcome for panels, mirrors and hanging pieces, from your ideas and pictures.

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 is returning to the Blue Light Gallery, exhibiting her amazing talent of paper cutting, using just paper to depict scenes of her home county. She doesn’t use scale and perspective but relies on the layering of paper to give a hint of depth to her work.
