Tour de Yorkshire Exhibition

'Lucy Pittaway has been confirmed as the race's official artist for a third successful year. See her five new soft pastel drawings in the Civic Art Gallery.  The Tour de Yorkshire route includes Bradford's Ilkley and Haworth over the weekend of 4 - 6 May.'

'Lucy beat off stiff competition to be awarded the title in 2016 and the partnership has flourished in the time since then. Her first commission 'Hills, Dales and Woolly Tails'proved hugely popular with cycling fans and art aficionados alike, and the 'Pedals, Passion and Glory' piece in 2017 was also a significant success. New for 2018 - instead of creating just one official print - Lucy has produced a series of five bespoke Tour de Yorkshire pieces.'

Today I took DS9 to see her artwork at Cartwright Hall in Bradford. 

We didn't get to watch the Tour de Yorkshire this year, but enjoyed watching last year as it came through our local park.

DS9 says 'I liked all the prints, but the ones with sheep were my favourite.' 

DS9 is currently working towards his Arts Award. Visiting exhibitions, taking inspirarion from the Artwork and gathering information about Artists all contribute to his award.

Are your kiddies doing the Arts Award?
