WORKS by award winning Lucy Pittaway, an artist born and raised in the North East, will be on show in a new exhibition at Preston Park Museum.

The selling exhibition opens on Saturday 8 December 2018 and runs until Sunday 24 February 2019.  

The stunning collection of prints and canvases are inspired by iconic North East landmarks, such as Roseberry Topping, Yorkshire’s Penhill and the Whitby Whale bone arch.

Lucy’s light-hearted depictions of special events, such as her art created for the Tour de Yorkshire, as well as the iconic sheep and Highland cows collection, have won her several awards from the Fine Art Trade Guild as well as the accolade of ‘The UK’s most popular selling published artist 2018’.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, Councillor Norma Wilburn, said: “We’re proud to be showcasing the award winning work of a local artist whose popularity continues to grow from strength to strength.

“Her colourful pastel prints inspired by the North East are sure to brighten up those dark winter days and bring a smile to all those who come to visit Preston Park Museum.

“As well as prints, visitors to the museum will also be able to purchase some of Lucy Pittaway’s art-inspired ceramics, textiles, greetings cards, calendars and diaries – the perfect Christmas or Valentine’s gift.”

Pieces sold from the exhibition will be available to take home on the day of purchase.

Lucy Pittaway’s exhibition will be open to visitors from 10am to 4pm (with last admission at 3.30pm) from Tuesdays to Sundays from Saturday 8 December 2018 to Sunday 24 February 2019.

Preston Park Museum & Grounds is closed on Mondays (except during school holidays) and on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Entry is free with normal museum admission.
