The Pop-Up Gallery, North Yorkshire Art Exhibition

You may already be aware of "The Pop-Up Gallery", where a collective of Artists showcase and sell their wares around North Yorkshire, in disused commercial spaces. 


The Pop-Up Gallery was founded by Sue Dewhurst an Artist currently residing in Yorkshire.

"My vision is to bring bursts of artistic activity to various unusual venues around the Dales in a series of one-day Pop-Up events.

Each event will have its own character and feel, with an ever-changing array of both traditional and contemporary Art. Some will involve interactive workshops; others will just be viewing and selling opportunities. All, will aim to be informal, fun and occasionally a bit hectic,  a chance for Artists to venture out of their studios and meet the rest of the world, exchange ideas or just have a chat". 

The idea is to help Artists, and also boost local economies in a bid to beat the recession.

On the 2nd of June, at Richmond Station in North Yorkshire, along with a number of other Artists Gemma, (from The Mucky Pup) will be selling her Art and other Handmade items.

So... for all you North Yorkshire folk, why not enjoy the recent good weather and pop to Richmond. The station itself has a permanent Gallery (holding ever changing Exhibitions), a restaurant & cinema!! What more do you need on a Saturday afternoon?
