A EXHIBITION of Yorkshire landscapes is now showing at Scarborough’s Coast Gallery until March 21.

The gallery, in Cloughton, is showing work by Penny McLean, of Kilham, near Driffield, and Rosemary Abrahams, of Bridlington.

Gavin Wilson, of Coast Gallery, said: “It’s been great so far. We had a good opening night and sold a couple of prints.

“Their work has created quite a bit of interest. It’s based around the Wolds, but each artist’s work has a totally different look.”

Penny works in oil on canvas and her chosen subjects are mainly landscapes and seascapes - but not always from the conventional angle - of Yorkshire, Scotland, France and Spain.

Rosemary’s landscapes are inspired by the locations where she has lived or visited, whether it be the vineyards of France, the Italian countryside, her own garden or the North Yorkshire Moors.

This exhibition will run until March 21 and will be followed on March 23 by a printmaker’s collection, titled Hot off the Press.

It will run until May 17 and feature etchings, prints, aquatints and linocuts. The exhibition will include work by local artists and those from further afield.
