Sally-Ann Smith, Curator of the Inspired by… gallery at The Moors National Park Centre in Danby, said: “The question we’re asking artists is: What makes the North York Moors special to you?

“This year marks the 70th anniversary of the National Park and we know that our landscapes mean many different things to many different people.

“Perhaps you live and work here, or maybe you have walked the heather moorland, cycled through the forests or admired the dramatic coastal views.

"We each have a unique connection to the North York Moors and a different interpretation of why it is special.

“This is a great opportunity to build connections among a vibrant art community, as well as to exhibit smaller pieces of work within a contemporary gallery setting.”

Entries can be in any medium, but must be original artworks (no digital copies) and no larger than A4.
