Exquisite intricate works of art, some inspired by the Museum’s own collection, are on display as contemporary artist Judy Hurst returns with her latest selling exhibition.
Specialising in the historic and traditional technique of painting on calfskin, her work is informed by her knowledge, respect and deep love of nature, wildlife and Northern heritage.
The vivid colour and design in her work is inspired by the Universe, from the smallest structures in nature to the celestial galaxies and beyond, as well as by the patterns and layout of Anglo-Saxon manuscripts.
If you’d like to admire her work for longer, you can buy the prints in the exhibition through the Museum shop, along with a selection of smaller prints and cards.
