A Cycle Tour of Yorkshire
June 9, 2014

We are really pleased to be able to display a very special piece of artwork to celebrate the Tour de France starting in Harrogate in just a few weeks time.  “A Cycle Tour of Yorkshire Stage I” has been produced by local artist Anita Bowerman to celebrate the occasion.  The original artwork took Anita 200 hours to cut with a scalpel from a single sheet of paper, having already designed the whole piece in reverse.  Prior to doing this she spent two weeks driving the route to gain inspiration.  We have been lucky to acquire one of a limited edition of 2014 giclee prints of the work, which you can see proudly displayed in the shop next to our TDF window!  You can also buy your own print from Anita’s studio, Dove Tree Art Studio.

The piece includes lots of local landmarks as well as 4 cyclists in leader jerseys.  Try to spot them all…
