Gallery’s budding partnership with Harrogate Flower Show

6 September 2013

A Harrogate art gallery is preparing for an exclusive exhibition at the Autumn Flower Show next weekend.

Rapture Gallery, based on Westmoreland Street, has been invited to provide a visual treat for VIPs at the show’s hospitality suite and will showcase the work of some of its favourite Harrogate and Yorkshire painters and sculptors.

Featuring paintings by Adam King, Peter Hill, Patrick Smith and ceramicist Eric Moss, the exciting exhibition will be open throughout the event, from September 13-15, for all VIP ticket holders.EricMoss_matedpairRED

Landscape artist Peter Hill draws heavily on the extraordinary landscapes of National Parks such as Derbyshire and the Lake District. His work features nature’s dramatic forms, gentle reflections and quixotic light.

Adam King – currently head of foundation at Harrogate College – has been painting for over 30 years. Using a range of media and techniques, he responds to his surroundings through representation of the architectural and natural world.

Patrick Smith is an established artist navigating the domain of fine art painting and printmaking. His practice concentrates on ideas associated with the edge and devices in composition and form.


Eric Moss principally works in raku, where clay takes a spectacular elemental journey through fire, air and water to become ceramic. His tightly controlled forms evoke seedpods, nuts and flowers, with simple decoration.

Rapture owner and manager Wayne Malton said:

Hot on the heels of our well-received show garden at the Spring Flower Show, we hope this exclusive exhibition will be the first of many such events at Harrogate’s famous Spring and Autumn flower shows. This is a relationship we plan to cultivate and grow!

For those not lucky enough to be a VIP, the gallery is open Tues-Saturday 10-5pm at 2 Westmoreland Street, Harrogate. Work from many of the artists represented by the gallery can be viewed on the website
