Truth and Fantasy

An exciting new exhibition is coming to Craven Museum and Gallery during February and March 2018. Further details below.

Skipton Truth and Fantasy brings together artists from across the UK who draw in highly skilled and imaginative ways, from pencil on paper to objects and animation. Their art responds to the real, and at the same time, reveals a spirit of enquiry and imagination, an uncovering of memories and the unconscious, where other worlds become visible.

The exhibition in Skipton will also include a selection of art works from the Roebuck Collection. Acquired by local art collector Clement Roebuck during the 20th century and bequeathed to the town of Skipton, the collection contains 145 paintings, watercolours, prints, drawings and sculpture, ranging from the 1700's to 1970's.

Truth and Fantasy artists:

Paul Chiappe, Dennis Creffield, Penny Davenport, Hondartza Fraga and Simon Woolham
