Mackenzie Thorpe to unveil his latest work at the Christmas exhibition at Arthaus in Richmond
Monday - November 26, 2018
The first weekend in December promises to be a festive extravaganza at Arthaus. This year Arthaus’ annual Christmas exhibition is being held on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December.
Mackenzie Thorpe will be in the gallery, unveiling his latest work and meeting and greeting customers old and new. A spectacular celebration of Mackenzie’s artwork, the exhibition is a chance to see original pieces and sculptures as well as first viewings of the Yorkshire-inspired Christmas limited editions, together with the artist’s 2019 calendar.
Mackenzie will be at the Richmond gallery from 12pm to 4pm on Saturday and 12pm to 3pm on Sunday, signing calendars and prints. With the town’s Christmas fair on Sunday 2 December the Gallery will be raising a glass of mulled wine as Finkle Street gets into the holiday spirit.
A highlight of the exhibition will be the release of the three new prints which depict the drama of a shepherd guiding his flock through snow-covered fields, under giant, winter skies and the stunning Richmond and North Yorkshire landscape.
For 30 years Mackenzie has perfectly captured the beauty of Richmond and the surrounding moors and dales. The triptych of warm pastel pictures celebrates the unspoiled beauty of the Yorkshire countryside at this special, festive time. ‘Richmond Wonderland’, ‘Heading Home For Christmas’ and ‘Yorkshire Snow’, are instantly recognisable as Mackenzie Thorpe classics.
Mackenzie Thorpe said:
“I’m so excited about the new show at Arthaus and as always love returning to our spiritual home of Richmond to open the exhibition. The area around the town has influenced so much of my artwork over the years and it is terrific to share with everyone three new prints that really show off the beauty of the area in winter.
Alongside the exhibition, Arthaus will have plenty of gifts for the art lover this Christmas. There is something for everyone with a whole host of Mackenzie Thorpe items available, including prints, sculptures, books, 2019 calendars and the always popular cards.
