Exhibition all stitched up

A NEW art gallery opens its doors in Cloughton this week, to coincide with North Yorkshire Open Studios.

The Black Cat Studio is in Beck Lane, opposite the Blacksmith’s Arms pub.

Its inaugural exhibition, entitled Stitched Up, is by former teachers Christine Heath and Marion Atkinson, who have lived and worked in the area all their lives.

Both work in textiles and find solace and relaxation in their art.

Black Cat will be open from Friday to Sunday and on 18 and 19 June, from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
