This month we head to Bridlington to feature the work of several artists who are raising the importance of protecting wildlife in East Yorkshire with a summer exhibition.

Gallery 49 in Bridlington’s historical Old Town is hosting a mixed exhibition of work by several Yorkshire artists this month highlighting the plight of pollinating insects and the importance of our gardens and parks to their recovery.

‘Gardens and Flowers’ features work by artists including Claire West, Samantha Bryan, Corinne Young, Shirley Vauvelle, Sharon Winter, Chris Moss, Esther Munday, Margaret Hockney, Jill Ford, Lee Karen Stow, Margaret McLellan and Meg Burkill.

Many of the area’s nature tourism destinations are also involved in the exhibition including Yorkshire Wildlife Trust/Yorkshire Nature Triangle, RSPB, Yorkshire Coast Nature, Flowers from the Farm cut flower project and the Secret Gardens (open gardens in our own area of Old Town Bridlington). Some organisations are holding special events to coincide with the exhibition which runs until July 6th. In July the exhibition moves to the Art & Rose Gallery in Pocklington.

We like to showcase the work of Yorkshire artists and photographers in our Gallery pages. If you think your paintings or photography will delight our readers, just email the editor esther.leach@yorkshirelife.co.uk with a couple of low-resolution jpeg images of your work together with your contact details.
