There is plenty to see this February at Beverley Art Gallery and the Treasure House, in Champney Road.
Two new exhibitions open on Saturday, 9 February; Beverley’s Past Industry Beneath Your Feet presents recent archaeological finds from excavations in the town.
The exhibition focuses on the manufacturing and craft working in the area during the medieval and post-medieval periods and is a joint project with Humber Field Archaeology.
Wycinanki: The Art of Polish Paper Cuts showcases 30 highly-detailed and intricate examples of paper cutting, a traditional Polish craft.
The exhibition is on tour from the Horniman Museum and Gardens, in London. Justyna Pyz from the Horniman, who curated the exhibition, said: “This collection of Wycinanki is remarkably diverse and represents a fantastic opportunity to discover a folk art which has flourished and continues to develop in Poland and which influences artists worldwide.”
There are also two drop-in family art and craft sessions to tie in with the exhibitions Pattern and Print on Saturday, 2 March, 10am-3pm, and Medieval Making on Tuesday, 26 March, 10am-3pm. The drop-ins are free, but a donation of £1 minimum per family to cover materials is requested.
Visitors can also pick up a copy of the 2013 Treasure House Exhibitions and Events guide to find out what is on offer for the coming year.
