DESIGNERS and artists creating the best in contemporary UK art and design have gone on display at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Editions and Objects features some of the most well respected artists, designers and makers working in the UK today - some of whom have been featured at the Park before, with others showing for the first time.

All of the work created by the 13 artists are available to buy, but in keeping with the theme of the exhibition, only in limited editions.

The works range from screen prints and lithographs, through ceramics and woodcuts, to jewellery and scarves – and new works created specifically for the exhibition.

Each has been selected by YSP’s retail programme and development manager, Amanda Peach, and Simon Lewin, co-founder of St Jude’s, which sells limited edition prints in its online gallery.

The artists featured include familiar faces Mark Herald, Angie Lewin and North Yorkshire-born Emily Sutton.

Leeds-born printmaker Jonathan Ashworth and Whitby ceramicist Terry Shone, who previously worked at Grassington Pottery in Upper Whafedale, also appear. Shone has produced limited edition model dogs especially for the exhibition, which are unusual as they are to a much smaller scale than he usually works, Ms Peach said.

She added: “Visitors will be amazed by some of the work.

“Peter Green, for example, is showing some works that date back to 1965 alongside new works that he is producing right now, and Katy Hackney’s jewellery is really unexpected.”
