A DANBY gallery is allowing artists from the Cleveland Art Society and Cleveland Fibre Arts Group to show their work from Friday (18 March).

Cleveland Art Society was founded in 1884 by 12 Victorian gentlemen including a Mr Calvert, the then director of education for Middlesbrough.

The group has gone from strength to strength and now has 45 members who exhibit throughout the year.

Their exhibition at the Inspired by… Gallery at The Moors National Park Centre, Danby is a collection of watercolour, oil and mixed media art depicting the landscape, flora and fauna of the North York Moors.

The Cleveland Fibre Arts textile group takes its inspiration from the Cleveland Hills and the North York Moors, producing pieces of spinning, weaving, quilting, felting and allied crafts which evoke the moods of this beautiful landscape through colour and texture.

Both exhibitions runs until Tuesday 12 April.

Admission is free and the gallery is open daily from 11am to 4pm in March and 10am to 5pm in April.
