Welcome To The Pannett Art Gallery

The Fylingdales Group of Artists (founded in 1925)

88th Annual Exhibition ONLINE at: https://www.thefylingdalesartists.co.uk

Due to the covid-19 virus the Members of the Fylingdales Group made the decision to cancel our proposed exhibition at Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby in 2020 and host an online exhibition instead.

The Group have been exhibiting yearly since 1952 at Pannett Art Gallery and hope that next year will see the return of the popular exhibition for our 89th Annual.

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.
