If you are curious, please feel free to read further - you are very welcome.  Gargrave is situated in the Yorkshire Dales,  just North-West of Skipton.  Here is a map to Gargrave...

and here is the location of the Village Hall...

 

The annual exhibitions, mainly by local artists, include many original paintings, some limited-edition prints, photographs and sculptures, and the Autumn exhibition also includes more limited-edition prints, and a wide variety of hand-made crafts.  Most of the works of art are for sale, there are artist workshops and artists in residence throughout the events, and usually a special exhibition in the side rooms.

 

We also invite the local school, Gargrave Church of England Primary School, and pre-school,

Gargrave Pre-School, to include the children's art, and a local florist brightens up the place with some lovely arrangements.

 

Refreshments are provided by the ladies of the Gargrave WI. 

 

There is Free entry & Free parking at Gargrave Village Hall.

Art & Crafts in Gargrave

Art & Crafts in Gargrave is another exhibition, this time in AUTUMN.  It is run on a slightly different basis, where artist from near and far can buy space to exhibit as many works as they like, either hanging space for pictures, or table space for other crafts.

It is run to raise money for both the Village Hall and other nominated local charities.  This year's charity hasn't been finalised yet, but as soon as it is, we will tell you here.

If you are interested in the AUTUMN exhibition, you can contact us via the information at the bottom of the page.

Opening times for the AUTUMN Exhibition are:-
     10:00am  -  6:00pm  (Thursday & Friday),
     10:00am  -  6:00pm  (Saturday),
     10:00am  -  4:00pm  (Sunday).

Addendum:-  We are sorry that the website is a little out-of-date regarding reports of the last shows.  Unfortunately our hosts have changed their rules slightly and we cannot add any more pages.  This means either a major rewrite. or a move to new hosts.  Please bear with us and we endevour to bring it up to date very soon. - Alan.

 

New Site, New Skills...

In relation to the length of time the Gargrave Art Exhibition has been running, this site is very young indeed but, in the spirit of embracing all mediums, we are learning how to transfer information about our exhibition onto pages on the Internet, and you are very welcome to join us, and give support in any way you wish.


We now have an  ART GROUP  that meets weekly at the Village Hall, and if you are interested in joining us, you can find a new page dedicated to it in the menu at the top.


We hope also to build an on-line community of artists, if you aren't so geographically close to us, so that information can be shared and disseminated quickly and easily, but it's rather like knitting, without any pattern!

 

But please, don't be put off.  We think it's important to encourage as many artists and as many skills as we possibly can, so even if you aren't computer-savvy, do get in touch.  We will strive to keep you informed in what's going on in, and around Gargrave.



Artist of the Year (Best In Show)


The 2016 winner of the public vote for "Best in Show" was David Walshaw with his painting 'Monday Morning, Venice', to which the image here does not do justice.
