Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage

Staithes Festival has established itself as one of the friendliest festival on the coast – a must-go-to event in the regional arts calendar.

During the weekend some 100+ cottages in the village become temporary art galleries in a unique selling exhibition. Staithes heritage is also celebrated in fossils, fishing, historic photographs and film shows.

More and more I work toward an image formed in the material from ideas, perceptions in a conceptual form. A “paraphrase” of nature that I work to claim as my own, a thought, a conception, an idea working to claim its releasing identity; a life’s work, always finding myself at the beginning, “but new every morning”. As T.S. Elliot says in Little Gidding: We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time.
