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.

Exhibiting Artists

Some 85 galleries throughout the village will open their doors for a unique selling exhibition. All the artists will be listed in the printed brochure (available within the village a week before the Festival and on the weekend) with a thumbnail image of their work and their medium. To find them, the brochure will show the galleries on the numbered map or you may prefer to wander the village (top and bottom) and take pot luck. In the meantime you can browse the alphabetical list artists and their work here.

Artist Spotlight - Chosen At Random From This Year's Exhibitors:

Ian Burdall

I paint in oils. I mainly paint on the East coast and love the areas between the Humber and the Tees. I also appreciate the landscape of Dungenss and have visited the area to paint several times. I tend to include an industrial or historical narrative to my paintings choosing to depict actual shipwrecks and decaying post industrial landscapes.

Venue: Hillside Cottage, Gun Gutter Venue 60

Medium: Oil Painting
