All singing,all dancing,drawing,making,watching…..


Our Dreams and Fairytales, our autumn exhibition, opened last week and has been causing a lot of excitement amongst The Gallery’s visitors. The exhibition room has been transformed again and couldn’t look more different from the Trace exhibition in August/September. Everywhere you look there is something unusual, fun, or sometimes sinister. Here are a few snaps of the exhibition…

See what I mean? You really need to visit to get the full impact, but I’m sure you will be soon, as Masham Arts Festival opens today!

If you haven’t heard already, Masham Arts Festival is a bi-annual, week-long extravaganza packed with exhibitions, workshops, music and food, with a few crazy interactive sculptures thrown in for good measure. At this point every two years, the festival committee, made up entirely of volunteers, are dashing about putting the finishing touches to everything in time for the big opening tonight. As is the tradition, the festival opens with a preview of the open art exhibition in St.Mary’s Church on the market square at 6pm, showcasing a wide selection of contemporary artists from the area and beyond. The exhibition preview is accompanied by a performance from northern acapella group Voicequad, then at 8pm festivities move to the town hall, for a performance from acclaimed Harrogate-based band The Birdman Rallies (back by popular demand).

There are so many more things going on throughout the week, it would take a lot of blogging to tell you about them all, so why not visit the Masham ArtsFestival website, facebook or twitter, or better yet, just come on down tonight.


Have a great half term!
