Hard Graft: Yorkshire at Work

New Book Hard Graft: Yorkshire at Work – Terry Sutton (£20)
Terry Sutton is one of Yorkshire’s most gifted illustrators, and in Hard Graft he has used his talents – both as an artist and as a photographer – to pay tribute to Yorkshire’s rich heritage of craftsmanship and industrial achievement – its willingness to roll up its sleeves and set to work. As well as over 75 of his own watercolours, Terry has included a carefully chosen selection of engravings and historic photographs to celebrate Yorkshire’s industrial past and it appetite for hard graft. Available from mid-October. There’ll be an exhibition at the Piece Hall Halifax next April.

Discover some of the past industries of Yorkshire through the fantastic illustrations and photographs of Terry Sutton. Following Terry’s successful exhibition, Yesterday’s Yorkshire, A Celebration of the Industrial West Riding by Terry Sutton in 2004, Terry once again uses his wonderful illustrations and photographs to captivate audiences young and old.

Rob Ryan – Yorkshire Sculpture Park

YSP – Rob Ryan.

“Artist Rob Ryan will be transforming the Visitor Centre at Yorkshire Sculpture Park this winter as his imaginative paper cuts and screen prints go on display from 11 November.

Famed for his detailed hand-cutting of delicate papers into intricate patterns, often revealing whimsical stories or poetic phrases, Ryan will be decorating the four metre-long shop window at YSP with a huge paper cut panel. Framed one-off paper cuts and limited edition screen prints, exclusive to YSP, will be on display throughout the Centre.”
