Local artist Peter Watson attended Hull College of Art and Liverpool College of Art in the 1960’s, where he experienced the legacy of the vibrant “Liverpool Scene” of artists, poets and musicians. Then followed a period of teaching in schools around Scarborough, but he continued to paint in his spare time.
The inspiration for his current work on display in The Carriage House at Burton Constable is derived from the Yorkshire landscape and in particular the Yorkshire Wolds and the Holderness coast.
This exhibition is included in the normal admission charges.
