Deborah Grice - Saul Hay Emerging Artist Award


Deborah is a British landscape painter and printmaker. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art and The Royal College of Art, London.

Deborah paints raw land, emptiness and weather. Her paintings are metaphysical in nature representing vastness and 'otherness'. At present she draws much of her inspiration from the Humber Estuary.

The winner of the Saul Hay Emerging Artist Award for the New Light Art Prize 2017.

"Having recently moved from East Yorkshire to North Lincolnshire, I have made countless journeys over the Humber Bridge. The dynamic beauty of the Humber Estuary has influenced by work significantly over the last two years as seen in the painting Coastal Moonlight II."

The Bowes Museum is looking forward to welcoming you on the 17 May


Staff have been busy behind the Museum’s closed doors getting everything ready to welcome visitors back safely.

Café Bowes has undergone a refurbishment and has a new menu waiting to be sampled, the Museum has been deep cleaned, new signage is in place reminding you to adhere to social distancing, hand sanitisation stations have been refilled, the shop has been restocked and staff are being trained ready to greet you back in a safe and timely manner.

North Country Quilts: In Celebration of New Acquisitions is now hanging in the main exhibition gallery ready to wow visitors through to January 2022 and, due to social distancing measures, entry to the display will be by a separate timed exhibition entrance ticket that needs to be booked, at no extra cost, before visiting. Song has also been reinstated in the Music Room so people can enjoy the sound of the instruments. A varied programme of activity is being planned throughout May and June which we hope you will participate in.

Entry to the Museum will be by timed slots and tickets will have to be pre-booked online here or by calling 01833 690606. The Museum will be open from 10.00 to 5.00 daily. Masks will need to be worn throughout the Museum, shop and café, except when eating or where exemptions apply.

We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
