As part of East Riding Libraries’ Digital Art Celebration, taking place until 29 February 2020, famed local digital artist and patron of the Celebration Gary Saunt will be creating a large digital painting called Unity.
His work will celebrate the East Riding, and how the library network and digital world has helped to connect local towns and villages into one community.
The 52nd annual Open Exhibition, which celebrates some of the best artistic talents in the region is now open at the Ferens Art Gallery.
More than 300 artworks have been selected by a high-profile panel of judges consisting of Senior Curator at Humber Street Gallery, Hull, John Heffernan, BBC Arts Correspondent Rebecca Jones, and Visual Artist Ian McKeever RA, who recently had an exhibition of his work on display at the Gallery.
There are only two weeks left to visit the colossal artwork by Gary Saunt – ‘A Cultural Pilgrimage from Beverley to Hull’ – on display free of charge at the Treasure House in Beverley until Saturday, 2 December.
The huge digital painting – measuring over 20 metres in length – has been produced to celebrate the transformational impact of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 on Hull and the East Riding.
So, the nights are getting darker now and there’s a chilly nip in the air. As summer has become a distant memory and the days are getting colder, there may not seem like a lot to do in the lead up to Christmas.
But fear not, there are still plenty of ways to enjoy your weekends without splashing the cash, so get your big coat on and walking boots on as you enjoy some of the best East Yorkshire has to offer.
