'Mason – The Man' Talk at Scarborough Art Gallery

Return of the Fleet

The work of renowned marine painter, print maker, illustrator and poster designer Frank Henry Mason comes under the spotlight in the next lunchtime talk at Scarborough Art Gallery.


Edward Yardley, widely regarded as the leading authority on Mason, will discuss the artist’s life and work in Mason – the Man at the gallery on Thursday 22 October at 12.30pm, during which he will guide attendees around the exhibition on the gallery’s first floor.

Mason (1875-1965) was born in Seaton Carew, but had a strong connection with Scarborough, living in the town with his family from around 1890. The self-taught artist, a founder member of the Staithes Art Group, is famous for his gorgeously-coloured marine paintings, and distinctive Art Deco travel and railway posters.

The current exhibition at the gallery, Frank Henry Mason – the Man and his Methods (until 3 January) features many rarely seen works chosen with the Edward Yardley’s help and never exhibited in Scarborough before. Works will come from the Scarborough Collections, and from other private collections.

Edward Yardley is the author of a new book, Frank Henry Mason: Marine Painter and Poster Artist (Colley Books Ltd), which is on sale in the gallery’s shop.

The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturdays from 10am to 5pm, plus Bank Holidays.

Tickets for SMT’s lunchtime talks, which will usually take place on the third Thursday of the month, are £2. Talks start at 12.30pm and last around an hour. Places are limited, so booking is recommended. To book, or for further information, please call the Art Gallery on 01723 374753.
