Exhibitions at Nunnington Hall
From breathtaking photography exhibitions to gift exhibitions inspired by Christmas, there's something to intrigue everyone at our special place.
Saturday 16 September – Sunday 12 November
The Art of Still Life, presented by the Chris Beetles Gallery
This enticing exhibition surveys the history of still life painting in Britain, from the reinvention of the genre by the meticulous hand of William Henry Hunt early in the Victorian period, to a cornucopia of fruit and flowers by such contemporary practitioners as Val Archer and Geraldine Girvan. Visit the Chris Beetles Gallery.
All of the work on display will be available for purchase.
Saturday 18 November – Sunday 17 December
Winter Wonderland by the Ryedale Embroiderers Guild
The Ryedale Branch of the Embroiderers' Guild will be presenting their exhibition of 'Winter and Christmas' themed work to celebrate the season. It will showcase a variety of styles of needlework and textiles, both 3d and 2d with some items for sale. Members of the group will be on hand to answer your questions and share information about our work. On the first Saturday there will be a demonstration showing a simple method to make your own individual greetings cards, and on Sundays we are holding a small workshop for adults and children to make their own sewn decoration. No previous experience necessary.
