22 May to 08 September
A tough and tender portrait of a ‘true-to-life’, born and bred shepherdess, Alison O’Neill . In a special corner of the Yorkshire Dales, there is deep gratitude and spiritual fulfilment to be found in the essential work of a Shepherdess. Documented in heartfelt photographs and personal words, this exhibition portrays the growing intimacy between a woman, her flock and her love affair with life on a small hill farm, and the intractable realities of this traditional existence.
