artWEEK is a local event with a national reputation – most of the exhibitors are from Holmfirth but visitors come from all over the country to view and to buy. It is astounding how much artistic talent there is locally – it is this that makes the event such a success . . . and brings so many visitors to Holmfirth every year.
The main Exhibition in the Civic Hall will run all week and feature work by 425 professional & amateur artists. [I have 3 Felt Ground Series pieces exhibited]. If you are looking for a bargain I've had a studio sort out & you can catch a good deal in the market area on the stage - framed and unframed pieces at a snip for the duration of artWeek
In addition there will be over 30 smaller fringe venues around the Valley.
I'm part of the fringe too: find a large selection of my work on the top floor at White Rose Gallery & Winnies, Daisy Lane Holmfirth - the PV/opening party is Friday 2nd July 6-9pm ALL WELCOME!
The first Holmfirth Art Exhibition was organised in 1967 by Isobel Shaw and Christabel Dangerfield. Their twin objectives were to provide an opportunity for local art students to show their work and to raise money for Cancer Relief (as it was then called) – on that occasion a grand total of £120 was raised for the charity.
Their legacy is an annual event which sells 2000 artworks every year and regularly raises in excess of £30,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Having achieved our target of £40k for the 40th event artWEEK has so far raised well over HALF A MILLION POUNDS.
