The new exhibition is called Reading the Landscape – Photographs and Words Inspired by Walking the Wolds. It will run until 6 June.
The exhibition has been produced with photographer Peter Heaton. Peter lives near York and has been inspired by nature writers such as Robert Macfarlane and J.A. Baker.
Peter has been out walking in the Yorkshire Wolds taking black and white photographs to which he has then added words.
Many of the images are about the emotions attached to being in the landscape. While they also focus on environmental concerns, such as the decline in butterflies and birds.
He has also created sound pieces, which visitors can hear on the listening post in the Treasure House.
Treasure House Exhibition Reading the Landscape Features Stunning Images
Treasure House curator Sally Hayes explained more, she said;
“Through stunning black and white images plus sound pieces and artefacts, Peter shares this experience with the viewer along with his concerns for our environment and love of landscape.”
There will be a programme of events to accompany the exhibition. These will start on Saturday, 21 March at the Treasure House from 10am-3pm.
‘Discover the Wolds’ will be a chance to meet the council’s countryside access team and find out what they do.
While you will also be able to learn about walks and events across the East Riding. Staff from the Yorkshire Wolds Way Partnership will also answer questions about this popular Nature Trail.
On Saturday, 28 March, visitors can drop into the exhibition space and meet Peter Heaton.
He will chat about the inspirations and techniques behind his images and sound pieces and his other photographic projects. There will also be a selection of historic Wolds objects to explore.
