Three generations of one family show how they see the Yorkshire Dales landscape in a new special art exhibition.

"Reflections and Connections" at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes features watercolours by Peter Hicks, outstanding landscape painter of North Yorkshire.

His daughter, Beverley Hicks, who is head of art at Skipton Girls’ High School, is showing her abstract paintings, while also included in the exhibition are works in metal and stained glass by her daughter Phoebe Scott, currently studying at Newcastle University. Phoebe’s work is inspired by the built and cultural heritage of the Dales.

Derek Twine, of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, which runs the museum, said: “This is a very special exhibition by artists who are living in Yorkshire’s National Parks – Beverley in Airton, where Phoebe grew up, and Peter who lives in the North York Moors, but often paints in the Yorkshire Dales.

“It was noted at the exhibition opening that locals are used to coming across Peter ‘in the middle of nowhere with his sketchbook’, at Malham Tarn, Settle tops, Gordale, or at the riverside in Airton. Beverley’s interpretation of the landscape is a reflection of her deep connection with it, while Phoebe herself has said her work is inspired by her family and growing up in North Yorkshire. So this is an exhibition deeply rooted in the landscape of the National Park.”

"Reflections and Connections" can be seen at the Dales Countryside Museum until December 31.
