Examples of artwork at the ‘Solus’ Exhibition

4th Section – Knaresborough is well known for the set of trompe l’oeil windows placed around the town and which remain in place all the year round.  FEVA have a number of their own trompe l’oeil which are installed every July and remain in place during the festival.
Trompe-l’œil is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions.
