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

including a Meet The Artist event
28 September
11am - 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.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to put on an exhibition of this sort at Rievaulx Terrace? Come along on 28 September to chat with Fiona about her exhibition, how she goes about preparing for something like this and where she gets her inspiration.
