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.”

Out of the Darkness:

Commemorating the Centenary of the First World War.

Stories of people living through the war and garments reflecting the influences of the war.

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.
