The Beverley Guildhall is offering ‘a little something extra’ during August. From Friday, 2 – Friday, 30 August there will be a table-top exhibition of paintings by local artist Tony Snowden.
The exhibition is entitled “Out of the Rain: People in Everyday Places”, and is in addition to the current local history exhibition, Edwardian Beverley: a snapshot in time.
Guildhall curator, Fiona Jenkinson, said:
“We are very pleased to be able to present Tony’s paintings because an art exhibition is a new venture for us. The paintings represent places around Beverley in a style that Tony describes as “a kind of moment suspended between memory and dream”. As such, there is a quality of mindfulness about the pictures which can be enjoyed by contemplating them in the historic ambience of the beautiful Georgian courtroom.”
“Out of the Rain: People in Everyday Places” will be on display in the courtroom of the Beverley Guildhall from Friday, 2 August to Friday, 30 August.
The Guildhall is located in Register Square next to the main post office. The building is open from 10am to 4pm every Wednesday and Friday, and admission to the building and the exhibitions is free.
“Edwardian Beverley: a snapshot in time”, uses photographs taken by ordinary people with the newly developed Box Brownie cameras. This well-illustrated exhibition shows the people and places of the town as they were at the start of the 20th century.
