A new exhibition celebrating northern landscape opens in Cumbria this weekend.

‘Northern Grit' is by artists Penny Hunt and Debbie Yare and is showing at Florence Arts Centre near Egremont from March 11th until April 22nd 2017.

Within the exhibition, both artists have drawn inspiration from direct experience of the northern landscape.

They've also incorporated elements of the land into their work; whether directly applying earth and grit to surfaces, using paint from locally sourced stone or working directly in the surroundings they are portraying.

There'll also be free workshops and a chance to meet the artists.

For more information, contact Florence Arts Centre in Egremont.

Working in the landscape, exposed to the elements, getting to know it's different moods and responding to them intuitively or being inspired by a particular place that draws you back time and time again. These things are more about a need to convey the feeling of the landscape and your own relationship to it than simple visual representation.
