The Fylingdales Group of Artists
Annual Exhibition at Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby

20 June – 23 July 2017

The Fylingdales Group of Artists (founded in 1925) will be holding their 85th Annual Exhibition at Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby 20th June – July 23rd 2017.

 

This diverse group of Artists have a common passion for the Yorkshire landscape in its ever changing moods.

The exhibition consists of drawings, paintings and original prints many of which depict the beauty of the Yorkshire coastline, Whitby, Staithes and further afield.

 

The group was formed in Robin Hood’s Bay in 1925 and has held an annual exhibition throughout the last century except during hostilities during World War Two.

 

They meet as a group formally once a year after our Annual Exhibition. A glance at the list of members will show they are scattered over a large area, it is quite a measure of strength of the group that Members are prepared to travel quite long distances to attend their Annual General Meeting. The main bond between members is a love of Yorkshire, its coastline and of painting.

 At each Annual exhibition the Group ask an invited artist to exhibit along side the Members, this years invitee being Geoff Hewitt from Hull,

A preview evening will be held at the Pannett Art Gallery on June 23rd at 7.00 p.m., visitors will be welcomed.
