Art in the open

AN open-air exhibition by Scarborough Art Society can be seen in the ‘sunken gardens’ at the top of St Nicholas Cliff, from Saturday.

The artists are inspired by the constantly changing moods of the Yorkshire countryside and coast.

Paintings of the town’s bays vie for attention with studies of Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Flamborough.

“Subtle, dramatic and atmospheric; the artwork encompasses a diverse range of styles and media, including oils, watercolours, pastels and acrylics,” says the society’s secretary, Shirley Warrington.

“The artists replace their pictures as they are sold, so a second visit is recommended”.

For the first time, the exhibition will run for three weeks instead of the usual two.

It will be open daily from 11am to 5pm until 4 September.

The club meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.15pm at Queen Street Central Hall.
