Whitby Art Society Exhibition

Whitby Art Society 23rd March – 20th May 2018

Saturday March 23rd sees the opening of the annual exhibition and sale of original works of art by Whitby Art Society. The exhibition held at the Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby, is open from Tuesday to Sunday 9.30am to 4.30pm.

The work this year is of a very high standard and includes a wide range of original artwork for sale all at affordable prices.   There is something to suit all tastes and budgets. Among the artistic genre on show are works of art in oils, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, mixed media and textiles. This exhibition is a must for any lover of art, and those people that are looking for something special to hang in their home.

The exhibition includes artwork by nationally and internationally recognised artists, such as Peter Hicks, John Freeman, Robert Brindley, Paul Blackwell, Anne Thornhill and Christine Pybus.

Whitby Art Society is a thriving society and its members meet on the 2nd Wednesday in the month at Sneaton Castle, Whitby.  Each month they have a talk and demonstration by professional artists, these are wide and varied.

Anyone can become a member, irrespective of their artistic endeavour, and will be made to feel most welcome.  There are ten demonstrations a year and to get a taste of the society, guests may attend meetings for a nominal fee of £3. Full membership is £25 for the year, which is exceptionally good value for money.

In addition to the painting demonstrations the group offer personal critique evenings and an annual exhibition, where all members have the opportunity to display at least one painting in the gallery.

A Whitby Art Society spokesperson said “We hope to see you at our exhibition and meetings!”

The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday 9.30am to 4.30pm.

There is a preview evening, open to all, on Friday 22nd March 7pm to 9pm, where refreshments will be served.
