“The membership is an eclectic mix of professional, semi-professional, amateur artists and complete beginners, who meet up regularly to paint, interact, watch demonstrations and share information and tips.

“The group provides a link between local artists and, as such, plays an important role within the wider social fabric of the local community.

“This year marks the 75th anniversary of the group -founded in 1949- and we felt it would be great to celebrate this achievement; after enduring the dreadful impact that the pandemic had on all social group memberships, with an exhibition!

“And where better than the RSPB at Bempton, which is already established as an important key visitor attraction for a coastal community essentially dependent on tourism.

“I contacted the RSPB to suggest a "wildlife" themed exhibition that might help to highlight the roles both groups fulfil within the town. A chance to showcase the work of our members, to celebrate our anniversary and to promote the very important environmental work that the RSPB continues to undertake.”

The exhibition is set to run between Friday, March 29 until Monday, April 1, from 10am to 4pm.

Work displayed will be available to purchase.
