ARTIST Victoria Alderson and Shona Watson, from Embsay, are staging an art exhibition at Embsay Village Hall over a weekend in June.

The two day Embsay and Eastby Art Exhibition is open to amateur and professional artists, who are at least 16 years old.

Exhibitors can submit up to five pieces of art, which can also be offered up for sale at the event.

A prize of £150 worth of art supplies, donated by The Art Shop, Skipton, will be awarded for the ‘People’s Choice exhibited artwork’ as voted for by visitors to the exhibition.

All profits from the event will go towards the upkeep of Embsay Village Hall.
