Welcome To The Pannett Art Gallery

The Art Gallery was a gift to Whitby from Alderman Pannett “for the reception and preservation of my water colour drawings, and works of art.”

Whitby Art Society are having a very different exhibition at the Pannett Art Gallery starting Tuesday 9th October to Sunday 4th November. Each member will show a Self-Portrait alongside a work more typical of their normal production. A very daunting undertaking, but lots of members have risen to this challenge.

There is a meet the Artists/Preview on Friday 12th October 7pm. All are welcome.

The gallery is open Tuesday – Sunday 9.30am  – 4.30pm and admission is Free.

There is always a selection of work by the amazing Staithes group of artists on display. These English Impressionists painted and exhibited as a group, in and around Whitby, from 1894 – 1909.
