Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

Clothylde Vergnes

Clothylde has been living and painting in North Yorkshire for over 30 years and regularly exhibits in local galleries. Her paintings are personal and stylised interpretations, inspired conceptually by Paul Klee's notion of "taking a line for a walk", and in practise by her experience of stained glass design, whereby colours are contained by defined boundaries. Her work focuses on landscapes between Whitby and Loftus, whether the open and empty stretches of moors or the crowded semi-symbiotic relationship of cottages and sea on the coast. Her oil paintings evolve from quick outdoor sketches and are elaborated in her studio.

Venue: 4A Cowbar Cottages, Northside

Medium: Landscape painter
