We are delighted to be exhibiting at the Pannett Gallery again, next to the only comprehensive exhibition of Staithes Group pictures in the world. This year we are highlighting the work of two specific artists alongside a good coverage of the Staithes Group in general and a small selection of other Yorkshire artists.

Over recent years we have seen a very poor range of works by Rowland Henry Hill appear on the market, a situation which we fear is not helping the public perception of his work. Having recently bought back two particularly good examples and on realizing that we are sitting on twenty of his pictures, we felt we needed to show them all to show the quality of the best of his work.

We also have a particularly good selection of works by Robert Leslie Howey which we felt fitted in well with our collection of  Rowland Hill’s pictures. As a young man Howey would often visit Runswick Bay with his father, John William, and would watch him paint alongside Rowland Hill and Mark Senior and wash their paint brushes.
