Centenary Exhibition: The Yorkshire Ones in Antarctica

‘The Yorkshire Ones in Antarctica’ is an exhibition by a group of artists, ‘The Yorkshire Ones’ who have taken their inspiration from the continent of Antarctica and its historic heroic explorers. It coincides with the centenary of Captain Scott’s failed attempt to be first to reach the South Pole and later his death in March 1912.

The exhibition also throws light on Yorkshire Antarctic veterans including Frank Wild who visited the Antarctic five times between 1901 and 1922 with both Scott and Shackleton and Hull’s Captain William Colbeck. Colbeck was not only a member of the first British Antarctic Expedition of 1898 but he also captained the relief ship ‘Morning’ sent to rescue Scott and his ship ‘Discovery’ which was frozen in the ice on Scott’s 1902-4 expedition.
