ALMOST 80 and still painting and producing etchings in his Norfolk studio on a daily basis, John Brunsdon is exhibiting his latest works in the summer exhibition at the Pyramid Gallery, York.

The portfolio he has amassed since the 1960s forms a substantial catalogue of British landscape and coastline views, including many of the Yorkshire coast, the North York Moors and the Dales.

York Minster, Castle Howard, Ripon and Richmond are other favourite subjects for Brunsdon’s stylised and instantly recognisable hand. As part of his third solo show at Pyramid, he has included five watercolours, including one of Robin Hood’s Bay.

Maintaining the Yorkshire coastline theme, York jeweller Karen Thomas has created silver jewellery inspired by seashells. Since graduating from the Birmingham School of Jewellery in 1998, she has taught jewellery-making while also working on her ranges of jewellery, limited editions, one-off pieces and commissions.

Yorkshire textile artist Sally Wilson is making her Pyramid debut after gallery owner Terry Brett spotted the newly graduated artist’s work and offered her the chance to exhibit there.

“One of the great pleasures in running a gallery is recognising a newly emerging talent and helping the artist become established,” he says.

“Sally has great skill as a seamstress and embroiderer that she uses to great effect in her humorous and eye-catching works. The three-dimensional textile and embroidered painting Mad March Hare is the work of very versatile and prodigious young artist.”

Other exhibitors on show until September 2 include potter Andrew Richardson and ceramic sculptor Garry Jones. Opening times are 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday; noon to 4.30pm Sunday.
