Discover art for all in the North York Moors – and it’s free

Whitby, North Yorkshire

See world-class art for free at the National Park’s ‘Inspired by… gallery’, a haven for contemporary art in the heart of the North York Moors.

The big spring show brings together strikingly original work by contemporary printmakers from four countries. Titled ‘Connections North: Mirror Images’, it’s an exhibition with a difference – opening simultaneously at Danby as well as in Finland and Sweden.

That’s some coup for a gallery in a rural dale, but this part of the world has a strong artistic tradition – and, whether at artisan glassmakers Gillies Jones in Rosedale Abbey, or galleries like Bils & Rye in Nunnington, Saltbox Gallery in Helmsley or the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton, the works on show are always free to view. Which means you can budget on spending just a bit more while you’re touring around, because art in the Moors is not all about the price tag.
