York artist Holly Argyll brings personality and colour to Treasurer’s House Gallery

The local York artist, Holly Argyll, who specialises in illustration and pattern design is making a welcome return to Treasurer’s House with her colourful and witty work bringing a splash of colour and personality to the walls of Treasurer’s House Tearoom. This is her second exhibition here, her first being a sell-out success as her original prints, gifts and cards proved to be very popular.

Holly Argyll said, “I'm really excited to be working with the National Trust and to be showing my work again. It's great to see my illustrations on display and to have people enjoy them as much as I do working on them.”

Holly Argyll launched her first solo exhibition at Treasurer’s House two years ago with a stunning array of illustrations – some of her inspiration drawn from the antics of her naughty cat Ernie and his adventures! This year Holly’s popular work maintains the witty character and has developed her range of characters...

“The focus this year is very much still on animals. As I live with such a menagerie it's hard not to be inspired by them and for them all to feature in my work! This second exhibition features a black and white dogs, original screen printed birds and of course chickens!”

Holly Argyll’s exhibition runs from Saturday 8 June until Sunday 8 July. Access is free to the gallery inside Treasurer’s House Tearoom and is open daily 11am- 4.30pm, closed Fridays. Her work includes original prints, greeting cards and gifts with prices ranging from £2.50 to £65.

A percentage of the sales contribute towards the conservation of the National Trust’s Treasurer’s House.
