Born in 1971 in Newcastle-under-Lyme Julian Mason was introduced to landscape painting by a college lecturer at the age of 21 whilst studying graphic design in Falmouth. Julian Mason’s paintings reflect the true glory of the landscape, often depicting rugged mountainous scenes with fast moving skies and also gentle sunsets and trees and flowers. Julian Mason spends the majority of his working time in the Lake District, Peak District and Cornwall in all weathers and all seasons. Working in oil and painting en plein air, Julian communicates his love of the landscape through his paintings. When painting the grandeur of the Lake District, Julian Mason’s keen eye and expert application of oil on canvas are combined to produce work of both depth and integrity that convey the enigmatic power and majestic beauty of this most stunning area of the British Isles. Now in his forties and living in Cheshire with his wife and two daughters his paintings are in many collections both in the UK and around the world.
If approaching the gallery from Penrith or the M6 heading East on the A66 there is a major diversion in place to the gallery via Motherby. Instead of this we would recommend taking the first turning right to Newbiggin shortly after the Rheged roundabout, follow the road through the village and then turn left as you come out of the village. Follow the road up the hill past the recycling centre and turn right at the bend where you will see our brown tourist board sign, follow the lane and signs to the gallery. Altenatively take B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke turning left left to the gallery less than a quarter of a mile out of Greystoke.
Otherwise please follow the diversion signs on the A66 - they will successfully get you here but it will take 10 minutes longer.
