This weekend saw my second year exhibiting at the amazing Art& Show in York
A huge thank you to the organisers of the show for making it such an enjoyable event to take part in, to the other exhibiting artists who have been a fabulous bunch to work alongside and a wonderfully receptive array of visitors. Many thanks to those of you who came and said hello and a special thanks to those who bought my paintings – I hope that they give enjoyment for many years to come.
I will be returning this month to the art& Show, York for the second year running.
The art& show is a fantastic opportunity for collectors, buyers, art lovers and anyone else who is interested in meeting artists and buying unique artworks to come along to this friendly, accessible and affordable show. Set over 3-days the art& show has over 120 artists work for sale & commission from a wide price range of £10-£20,000.
As well as having artists selling their own artworks there will live music, interactive areas, installations, workshops, demonstrations and a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
This weekend, the 8th & 9th of September, sees the annual Staithes Festival of Arts & Heritage.
Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festivals on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.
During the weekend over 150 artists in over 90 cottages and public spaces around the village, become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.
There are talks, walks, workshops and live music from soul to sea shanties. After dark the village lights up with installations and an outdoor film show. Refuel in the local pubs and cafes or one of the visiting pop ups like the harbourside seafood shack.
I shall be there exhibiting a selection of original seascapes, prints and greetings cards at East Lea on the High Street (the blue cottage with the willow dog outside!) throughout the event so if you’re there over the weekend be sure to pop in and say hello.
