Commission

York Open Studios 2011

In 2017 I undertook a commission, which was completed successfully.  It was an enjoyable process ; of suggesting options in relation to my existing work, drafting a design with oil pastel, and then realising the full painting (here) . New commissions are welcome.

York Open Studios 2016

In 2015 and again in 2016 I took part in York Open Studios.  I showed as usual at the Chapel in York Cemetery, and was pleased to meet many visitors who had come to previous exhibitions.

Roslyn Lyons Exhibition

Cathy Denford - Roslyn Lyons Exhibition

With a specific exhibition coming up, I produce work to suit the space.  For the Roslyn Lyons Gallery in the Music Research Centre at York University I made a number of large bird paintings that could be hung to suggest movement up the main tall wall towards the window/skylight at the top, whilst placing figure paintings at ground level.  Reviewing the exhibition Charles Hutchinson wrote in ‘The Press’ : ‘Rarely does artistic form and presentation come together in such perfect harmony’.

York Open Studios 2011, 2006

York Open Studios 2011

As my pictures are often large in scale and viewed most effectively from a distance, my participation in York Open Studios has been through exhibiting at external venues rather than in my own home, where my studio is low under the eaves.  These have been twice at the Cemetery Chapel, in the old York Cemetery (above), and at De Clare’s café in the city centre.
