I’ve been spending a lot of my spare time recently collecting together pieces of Dalesman memorabilia and artwork in preparation for a new exhibition. Off The Page: The Story of Dalesman Magazine will be held at The Folly in Settle from April 3 to July 2 and will give our magazine readers and visitors to the museum the chance to see a great deal of artwork by some of Yorkshire’s top artists. Everything from pencil sketches to top-class water colours will be on show. Plus there’ll be cartoons and a selection of covers throughout the decades and much more. I’ve been lucky enough to chat to several artists and photographers as well as the sons and daughters of talented artists from the past. The exhibition will also bring in much-needed funds for the North Craven Preservation Trust who are looking after the magnificent Folly (pictured). I’ll bring you more details of The Folly and the exhibition nearer the time.
