Much excitement now in Staithes as we get ready for our 4th annual Festival of Arts and Heritage.  We’ve got lots of treats lined up for you as you can discover on the Festival website www.staithesfestival.com

The gallery will be filled to the brim with delights from all our regular artists while our artist and Eton’s Drawing Master Ian Burke will be putting on a fabulous new show, Flotsam and Jetsam, in the Sunday School Gallery in the old Wesleyan Chapel on Beckside.  The show will feature some of his old favourite themes (there WILL be Lobsters!) plus some new surprises.  Come along in the evening on Friday 11th September for a preview and a glass of wine.  The exhibition will continue throughout the weekend and be open for viewing throughout September and early October.

Told you there’d be lobsters!

Ian will also be offering two print-making workshops during the Festival. Click here for more information and contact the gallery if you’d like to book … but hurry as places are limited.
