‘Spirit of Yorkshire’
The Fylingdales Group of Artists 87th Annual Exhibition
July 2nd – August 4th.
The Group usually hold one Exhibition per year at Pannett Art Gallery, Pannett Park, Whitby, the venue being first mentioned in the Group minutes in 1952. They meet formally once a year after their Annual Exhibition. A glance at the list of members will show that they are scattered over a large area, it is quite a measure of strength of the group that Members are prepared to travel long distances to participate. Group Secretary Michael Atkin said “The main bond between us is a love of Yorkshire, its coastline and of painting.”
The group is open to professional and amateur Artists. Membership is by invitation only.
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.

Lore and the Living Archive
August 7th – September 8th
Photographer, Bryony Bainbridge; printmaker and poet, Natalie Reid and multimedia artist, Anna FC Smith, contemplate what place traditions have in contemporary society and how they influence the communities in which they originate. The artists also consider the role of the archivist and how his presence at some events has become as anticipated and revered as the tradition itself.
Pannett Art Gallery is set in the peaceful and charming grounds of Pannett Park in the centre of Whitby. The gallery has an eclectic mix of 19th and 20th Century paintings on permanent display.
