An exciting summer showcase of North Yorkshire Open Studios members has gone on display at the Exhibition Gallery in Skipton Town Hall.
Featuring selected artwork of thirty artists from across North Yorkshire, visitors to the exhibition will get the chance to discover everything from sculpture and oil paintings, to textiles and ceramics – as well as purchase pieces on display. The exhibition highlights diverse artwork from artists from the coast to the moors, dales, and beyond and will run until the end of summer.
Visitors will get the opportunity to explore work from a variety of artists, many of which have exhibited widely including the Royal Academy Summer Show, Ferens Gallery, Royal Watercolour Annual Exhibition and Saatchi Gallery, as well as internationally.
The showcase of selected artists follows the recent North Yorkshire Open Studios annual event that enables artists and makers to open their studios to the public over the first two weekends in June. Established in 2005, this much-loved event has grown to become one of the major events in North Yorkshire’s cultural calendar, as well as one of the North’s most prestigious open studios events. With studios located right across the county, 140 artists took part in this year’s event, where visitors had the opportunity to visit unique and varied artist venues, surrounded by stunning North Yorkshire landscapes.
Danielle Daglan, Cultural Services Manager, said: “This summer showcase is a fantastic opportunity for our visitors to explore and support the thriving artistic community in North Yorkshire. We are particularly delighted to collaborate with NYOS to bring together, and spotlight artists from many different areas in the county. As we have recently made our move into the new North Yorkshire Council, we really wanted to celebrate being part of North Yorkshire’s vast cultural community. The exhibition is a true testament to the creativity that can be found across our region.”
