Dark Skies Exhibitions at Inspired by... Gallery

About

For the first time the North York Moors National Park’s Inspired by… gallery has commissioned two artists to produce new bodies of work that not only celebrate the night sky but also promote a wider understanding of its fragility in the face of creeping light pollution and the detrimental impact this is having on the natural world.

World-renowned astronomy artist Louise Beer has spoken to National Park dark sky consultants as part of her research into the philosophical and ecological importance of natural darkness. She will then interpret their relationship to the night sky through photography, installation, sound and a visitor participatory element, for her ‘Dark Reflections’ exhibition which will be designed to help inspire positive environmental change.

Meanwhile talented Yorkshire Dales-based printmaker Helen Peyton has spent time walking ancient routes across the North York Moors landscape at night, guided only by landmarks and the stars, to create a series of artwork entitled ‘Starscapes’.
