DISCOVER art in inspirational locations as part of the 2019 North Yorkshire Open Studios.

Over 100 artists across the county will be inviting visitors to take a peek into their studios over two weekends this June.

Discover art in a wide range of places, whilst enjoying a creative treasure trail of studios stretching from the coastline to the moors and dales, exploring villages and market towns located right across the county.

Ryedale Artists include Sproxton based Stephen Heward whom following a career as a landscape architect and flying instructor, has discovered painting as a liberating and expressive outlet.

Skilled artisans include hat maker Veronica Hartley at Thornton le Dale whose stunning creations are inspired by insects, plants, and the surrounding landscape.

George Gold a Pickering based furniture maker/designer who has made pieces for Turner Prize winner, Simon Starling and ‘Newsnight’ presenter, Evan Davis.

Wildlife and landscape artist Jonathan Pomroy’s paintings are composed from sketches and observations made in the field in all winds and weather.

He derives great inspiration working in North Yorkshire, a county which offers a wide variety of habitat and landscape; one day could find him sketching Red Grouse on the moors, the next drawing Puffins on the coast at Bempton Cliffs.

The event is a chance to discover a fantastic mix of established and exciting new creative talent, from potters and painters, to jewellery, textile artists and printmakers and lots more at this popular free event.

There are many chances to have a go, take part in an inspiring and fun activity and try something new with friends or family.

North Yorkshire Open Studios takes place on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 and Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9.

Studios are open 10am – 5pm. Entry is free.
