INSPIRED BY … GALLERY, DANBY: Three exhibitions run to Monday 21 May.

Each has a distinctly different style and point of view when putting paint to paper. The exhibition is complemented by a display of fused glass jewellery and sculpture. Coast to Country - Heather Burton’s palette knife paintings capture the changing moods and character of our landscape, from rugged coastlines and cliff-hugging villages to dramatic moors and hills. Alongside - Exploring the people, flora and fauna that inhabit this local landscape, Suzie Devey uses an array of printmaking techniques to reveal untold and unimaginable encounters. Playing with scale and proportion this exhibition surprises the audience with microscopic elements encountered as large-scale linocut prints and detailed story scrolls depicting incongruous moments from everyday life in the North York Moors. Free entry. Open 10am-5pm.

We will also be moving the Wilfred Owen bust into the exhibition space.The exhibition runs to September 2. Open Tuesday to Sunday and bank holiday Mondays, 10am to 5pm.

SCARBOROUGH MARITIME HERITAGE CENTRE, EASTBOROUGH: Our current exhibition is 110 years of the Marine Drive. The Marine Drive project was very bold, building around the rocky headland in storms with basic mechanical equipment. It took longer and cost more than projected but finally opened in 1908. We have some great photographs showing the building and opening. Alongside this exhibition we have all our previous exhibition information in browser files alongside a well stocked reference library and archive of local history and maritime books and literature. Open 11am to 4pm Wednesday to Sunday.

ROTUNDA MUSEUM, SCARBOROUGH: Star Carr Display. Star Carr is one of the most important Early Middle Stone Age sites ever found and it is right on our doorstep; only a few miles south of Scarborough. The site, which stood on the edge of a now extinct lake called Lake Flixton, was discovered in the late 1940s and dates from around 11,000 years ago. The range of artefacts found at Star Carr and scientific studies of the landscape have revealed more about life at the time than any other site in the world. An exciting new permanent display at The Rotunda Museum will showcase objects from Star Carr and help to tell the story of how our Stone Age ancestors lived. This will be the first time for many years that items from Scarborough’s Star Carr collection will have been on display, so don’t miss your chance to see them. Open Tuesday to Sunday, and bank holiday Mondays, 10am to 5pm.
