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.”

‘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.

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.
