Saturday 8 August – Saturday 19 September
‘Meet the Artists’ event will be held on Saturday 22 August 11am – 2pm
Our current exhibition ‘Wild at Heart’ is a collaboration between artists Hannah Dale of Wrendale Designs and fine artist Andy Broderick.
AN INTERNATIONALLY recognised greetings card designer will put on her first ever exhibition, accompanied by a North East fine artist.
Hannah Dale, of Melton Ross, Lincolnshire, has been building up Wrendale Designs from scratch for four years. Her husband Jack is now managing director and they employ six full time staff in the business.
Hannah’s extremely popular whimsical designs of wild animals have won multiple prestigious awards and are found in gift shops up and down the country, as well as being exported worldwide.
A zoology graduate of Cambridge University, she has previously focused on the greeting cards, and has never had an exhibition of her artwork.
For her first exhibition she has chosen to collaborate with fine artist Andy Broderick, who is regularly found exhibiting throughout Yorkshire and the North East.
Andy, originally from Kilkenny in Ireland, came to the UK in 1998 to study fine art at Teesside University, and decided to stay after graduating, settling in Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorkshire.
He has previously been known for his portraiture work, exhibiting with the Royal Portrait Society in Newcastle.
Andy now paints wildlife found in the countryside in North Yorkshire, mostly from photograph’s he has taken himself on trips to the moors at dawn.
The pair have been brought together by Joe Cole, Managing Director of Natural Partners Limited, a company specialising in publishing fine art greeting cards featuring the work of a wide array of artists and photographers. The company has been publishing cards of Andy’s work since 2012.
The exhibition will run from August 8th to September 19th here at The Steel Rooms and a ‘meet the artists’ event will be held on August 22nd between 11am and 2pm.
