PAINTINGS by an Ilkley artist depicting Wharfedale, Venice and The Var will be exhibited at a Yorkshire country house this autumn.

Kevin Dixon will show 30 new oil paintings taken from his travels over the past year in the solo exhibition at Lotherton Hall, Aberford, east of Leeds.

The exhibition will run from September 25 to December 31.

“I am delighted to be holding this exhibition at Lotherton Hall,” said Mr Dixon. “In order to be considered you have to be Yorkshire born and bred and not just that they have to like your work, so I am thrilled.”
