Art in Leeds – online gallery and shop opens

Art in Leeds online shop sells art cards, fine art giclee prints and original paintings by Leeds-based artist Jo Dunn

Art in Leeds is a new online gallery and shop where you can buy my greetings cards, fine art prints and paintings.

The idea for Art in Leeds has been developing for a while. Now seems like a good time to bring it to life. It’s been a good year for exhibiting paintings and for art in general. We hope that 2015 will be just as good.

Art in Leeds has a lot of possibilities and a bright future. It’s open all hours, so why not call in and have a look around?

Art in Leeds – keep art alive!

Jo Dunn – Biography – by David Veron, 2014

Bono Art Gallery is closing these premises at the end of the month. A new location is hopefully just around the corner. You are invited to come to this last preview – and visit in the next week – to show your support and thanks to Roberto Bono for all the great art that has passed through Otley in the last two years.

The show goes on…
