Museum artist becomes TV star

28 February 2012

After the hugely successful first series, ITV's 'The Dales' has returned with Adrian Edmondson exploring more parts of the Yorkshire Dales and the characters who make it such a unique place.

The museum's artist in residence Helen Peyton shot to fame in 2011 when she had two pieces accepted into the exclusive Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Helen was then approached by 'The Dales' to appear in the second series of the programme to discuss her printmaking and all the other work she does locally. She was filmed at work in the museum, as well as judging artwork at a local festival and giving Adrian Edmondson a drawing lesson. Helen will appear in two episodes towards the end of the series.
