Art in the outdoors

Fiona Bowley

Rievaulx Terrace has held a number of art exhibitions in years past, and this year we’re proud to host the immersive exhibition of Fiona Bowley.

A Tale of Two Sketchbooks by Fiona Bowley
Saturday 4 May – Sunday 29 September
10am – 4pm

Inspired by the rich history and theatrical landscape of Rievaulx Terrace, experience Fiona Bowley’s immersive sculpture exhibition telling the story of an imagined meeting of two young 18th-century women artists from contrasting backgrounds. One is privileged but bound by the conventions of society, the other lacks wealth but has the freedom to express herself, but they may yet discover they’re not so dissimilar after all – beginning with a cherished toy sheep.
