Still chance to catch Pannett Art Gallery exhibition

THERE is still chance to catch a special exhibition by the renowned Fylingdales Group of Artists at Whitby’s Pannett Art Gallery.

The group is celebrating their 79th Annual Exhibition which is on now .

This year’s exhibition will be displaying 84 paintings, drawings and prints.

The group was founded on 25 June, 1925 at a meeting held in Mr Denton’s Hawley’s studio in Robin Hood’s Bay.

It was to be limited to 12 members.

But this was increased to the present number of 22 some time later.

Exhibitions were held annually in the Church Rooms, Robin Hood’s Bay, until the outbreak of war in 1939.

They ceased during the war years.

However, the group was brought together again at the end of hostilities by Harold Todd, who continued to serve the group as secretary for many years.

The annual exhibition continued to be held in Robin Hood’s Bay until 1952 when it moved to its present venue at the Pannett Gallery.

During the years, many well known artists have been members.

They include Algernon Newton, R.A., Roland Hill, Florence Hess, Albert Pile, Harry Bateman, Fred Williams, John Carter, Bill Lowe, Will Taylor and many others.

Continuing a long held tradition of showcasing invited artists the group will include Jack Stancombe, Angela McCall and Whitby born sculptor Darren Yeadon.

The Fylingdales Group of Artists exhibition runs until 16 Juue.
