A new exhibition opens at the Treasure House in on Saturday, 7 March. Curators at the have described the work by the artist as stunning.

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.
