Sponsors of Ryedale Open Arts Exhibition

  • Posted

We are very pleased to be again asked to be sponsors of the Ryedale Open Arts Exhibition. We thoroughly enjoy attending this event and seeing the artists work on display.

The exhibition is a fabulous display of local, excellent talent and is enjoyed by many people and we are very proud to be associated with it. Many works will be shown by Ryedale artists and makers and there is something for everyone.  The exhibition includes paintings, print, sculptures, metalwork, textiles, photography and ceramics.  Most of the works are for sale so that visitors could own an original piece of work by a local artist. The exhibition is open to the public from 7 -14 July 2012, 10am - 4pm (not Sunday) at the Milton Rooms in Malton.
Yvette Turnbull, event organiser, said of last year’s event “It was a particularly well attended private view on the opening night with about 300 people in attendance. We had a really successful show too; we had over 1600 visitors during the week and sold many pieces of works. One visitor wrote in the visitor’s book that the exhibition made them ‘proud to be British’ and another that it was ‘the one exhibition I will not miss’ ”.
