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.

Kelly Herrick

Kelly is an artist who finds joy in the landscape. She captures it, wraps it in colour and brings it to life with her own bold and contemporary style. With her art she connects people to a special time and place by creating a unique moment in paint. Having worked in the creative industries for over 20 years, Kelly took up a paint brush in her 40s and found she simply couldn’t stop painting. Her values of authenticity, creativity, freedom and joy are all expressed through her work. Her paintings help people fall in love with our landscapes all over again.

Caroline Hudson

Caroline paints and works with clay, applying the same principle of building up layers and surface interest in both mediums. She is is fascinated by colour, light and texture, is endlessly inspired by the moors and sea and strives to make Art that feels part of the landscape, as well as encapsulating her emotional response to it. Caroline is delighted to be returning to Staithes Festival and will exhibit her paintings alongside her ceramic vessels, tiles and fish.
