David Stead Gallery
Ripon's premier contemporary art gallery; David Stead Gallery first opened it's doors in 2002 primarily to exhibit the work of gallery owner & renowned artist David Stead. This year David is working on a major series of landscape paintings entitled 'In The Footsteps Of Turner'
"In 1797 Turner set up his easel outside what is now the gallery and began a drawing of Kirkgate and Ripon cathedral. The drawing was part of a major series of works focusing on Yorkshire and the north of England and it inspired an odyssey of my own, visiting the places Turner had painted and making my own works. The project is taking me to places I might not ordinarily have visited and is giving me a new perspective on my home county".
We also hold various exhibitions by contemporary artists throughout the year. If you would like to be on the mailing list please email me at the above address.
