Artist in Residence appointed to the Cleveland Way

1st November 2018

An ‘artist in residence’ has been appointed as part of plans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cleveland Way in 2019.  

The 109-mile Cleveland Way which runs across the North York Moors National Park from Helmsley to Filey Brigg via Osmotherley, Saltburn by the Sea, Whitby and Scarborough, is 50 years’ old on 24 May 2019.

Landscape artist Debbie Loane from Easingwold has been appointed as the trail’s artist in residence and is now preparing a major exhibition of her work, titled ‘109 Miles’ that will be staged from 11 May – 9 June at the National Park’s Inspired by… gallery at Danby to coincide with the anniversary.

The exhibition will be based on Debbie’s interpretation of six very distinct stretches of the Cleveland Way trail that she walked earlier this year and which were chosen to reflect the diverse landscape along the route.

The locations include the tree-lined route above Rievaulx Abbey, the sweeping escarpment of Sutton Bank, the cliff tops around Skinningrove and Boulby and the urban townscape of Scarborough.

In 2016, Debbie, who runs the Lund Gallery at Easingwold, was one of two artists who retraced the steps of artist JMW Turner across Yorkshire to produce an exhibition at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes marking the bi-centenary of his work.
