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.”

Although the Pannett Art Gallery is closed you can still enjoy learning about some of our paintings. Click “What’s On” to find our Painting of the Week and “Past Exhibitions” to see previous works featured here.

The Mayor of Whitby, Councillor Linda Wild, is really keen to show you some of our paintings whilst the gallery is closed #WildAboutArt #MuseumFromHome

With the Pannett Art Gallery being closed, we are finding alternative ways of showing you some fabulous works of art.

In normal times this week would have seen the opening of a new exhibition at the Pannett Art Gallery, of work by students studying A level at A2 or As level in Fine art and Graphics at Caedmon College. A2 is the full A level and the vast majority of students have followed this qualification.

Not wanting people to miss out on this wonderful display of fabulous creativity the Pannett Art Gallery, working with the staff at Caedmon College, have made a selection of their artwork available on the Pannett Art Gallery website.
