Angie Lewin at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park 2013.

November 20, 2013

I had another rare treat last Saturday. Spending time in my favourite Yorkshire Sculpture Park again and meeting up with the very talented Angie Lewin all in one day ! Angie has a beautiful collection of her work on show, now until 23rd February 2014, so you’ve plenty of time to get and see it.  There’s also a huge selection of Angie’s tempting gifts to treat yourself to in the YSP shop, see if you can resist, I couldn’t lol

Part of the display as you enter the building and some displays inside the shop too.

It’s pretty difficult to take good images of artwork that is behind glass, because there is always a glare of light on it somewhere, but hopefully these should give you some idea of how amazing the exhibition was.

It’s even easier to appreciate, by getting to see the work close up, just why this work is so popular. There’s a relaxing calm to her illustrations and a delicate, intricate beauty that simply draws you in beyond the frame. I loved seeing the difference in scale in her work and throughout the exhibition too.

I also really loved seeing these striking, one-off pieces, that had been hand-painted onto drift wood. Such a perfect medium for the work I thought.

I also enjoyed seeing the delicate watercolour selection of artwork. Fine, subtle and sensitive.

Angie had spent some time over the previous months, whilst preparing for her show here, out in the fields and woodland, sketching in the surrounding landscape. Photos by YSP.

Some of her watercolours are sold as one off original pieces.

Great to see some of Angie’s artefacts laid out too.

I can’t quite afford a limited edition print just yet but I didn’t think a Lewin mug would break the bank ! I told you I couldn’t resist lol

As luck would have it, Angie also made a surprise appearance on Saturday.  I was extremely fortunate to not only to catch up with her for a chat for 20 minutes, but she very graciously signed my catalogue and posed for a photo for you lucky folk too : )

Thanks Angie, it was lovely to see so much of your work all together and great to finally get to speak too. Enjoy the rewards of all your hard work.

    I love her work! I bought a few card by her at the V & A sometime ago. And the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, I had been there once – my in-laws live in West Yorkshire. It was a beautiful place (^-^)

    Looks like a great exhibition. I hope to go in the next few weeks. I love her graphic style.

      Some lovely work in the shop too. Somewhere for us all to aspire to feature in one day lol Don’t forget our dinner date too : )

    Thanks for going to see this for me! It looks great and I hope by Feb I might have seen it in the flesh – but if not, you’ve done a great job 🙂

      My pleasure. You saw the Hockney one for me, so fairs fair lol I would say that seeing it, in the flesh is much better than my photos, and the park itself too. Good luck in getting there.

    Weather permitting, that might just be my birthday treat….

      Do I recall you being a Capricorn ? You may well get a wintery frosting on the sculptures too. Sounds like a great birthday plan to me.

        Very early in the year, just when the last thing you want is another party! Was vile weather last year, so fingers crossed…especially as it is BIG one next year….

        Not you’re 21st ! Let’s hope a tropical wave hits the UK on that day, either that or go to the tropics, maybe easier : )

    Thanks for the preview – looking forward to visiting this very soon.

    Great piece, it does look like a wonderful exhibition and I’m hoping to get up there before it closes next year. Lovely to see a peek of the lampshades I made for the exhibition too, it was great to be able to contribute. The Meadow’s Edge is one of my favourites. Best wishes, Karen.

      Thanks Karen, well worth as you say trying to see it for yourself. Thanks for your comments, the lamp shades look great too.
