About us

Simon Wilcox is an "an old-fashioned draughtsman of sorts" artist based in Howden.

Like many artists Simon is drawn to the sweep of big skies, the shore, storms, hills and mountains - the places that make us feel insignificant in the eye of nature. And Simon admits to having a particular and quite peculiar "thing" for trees without leaves.

Simon works mainly in ink, often with a watercolour finish. He is also drawn to the jeopardy of working on a white board with indelible inks and traditional dip pens as it requires precision and has little room for mistakes or correction. With some work requiring days of effort, a single error or lapse in concentration can destroy the piece in seconds.

This exhibition preview is an opportunity to come and see Simon's work before the general opening, and a chance to meet and talk to Simon about his work.

This is a ticket only event. Tickets are free but limited in number. Apply to Simon Main at village gallery.

Village gallery currently also has on sale the work of a number of other Yorkshire artists … Rebecca Mason - a batik artist, Ralph Shuttleworth - a young award winning wood turner, Heather Tabor - photographic art and Malcolm Ludvigsen - plein-air land and seascape artist working in oils. Some of these artists may also be on hand at the preview.
