We will be celebrating the art of the village and much more over the weekend of 8/9 September 2018 (preview evening Friday 7 September) when the villagers of Staithes will open their cottage doors to the public as temporary galleries for a selling exhibition of work by resident and visiting artists. Last year we hosted 130 artists in 87 venues. Work included painting, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, jewellery and crafts.
Visitors will be able to walk the maze of lanes visiting ‘galleries’ as well as taking part in a programme of guided walks, workshops, talks and film shows. Heritage too plays an important part in the life of the village and will be celebrated in events and exhibitions throughout the weekend. There will be a vibrant programme of music ranging from street buskers to concerts.
