201st Exhibition Now Open.

Our spring show is now well underway, kicked off tonight by a lively preview night at the De Grey Rooms in York.  The evening was opened by our Chairman Peter Cooke.  Our guests enjoyed a fine evening of art with light refreshments and a musical backdrop provided by Thirsk-based pianist Jean Hotton.

The work was of an extremely high standard from both regular established names and newcomers.  Featured artists include Luisa Holden, Sam Mortimer, Raske Jaske, Lin Taylor, Caroline Lewis, Jelena Lunge and Phil Hart.

Luisa once again was awarded the Selector's choice and Sam won the Public Vote for favourite picture. Thanks to Kim from Blossom Street Gallery  for ably filling the role of this year's selector.

Apart from the original framed works in the main exhibition there is also a selection of cards, prints and unframed originals available to purchase.

The show continues until Sunday 31st May and is open to the public, free of charge, daily from 10:00am.  Drop in if you're in town this week.
