Works by Staithes Group Artists and Members of the Staithes Art Club and also by Stephen Frank Wasley 1848-1934

The Pannett Gallery, Whitby from Saturday15th June to Sunday 30th June, 2019 excluding Mondays.

We’re back again for a selling exhibition alongside the Pannett Gallery’s collection of paintings by Members of the Staithes Group and the Staithes Art Club. These artists worked in an artists’ colony which gradually formed in the Parish of Hinderwell-cum-Roxby and thrived between the early 1880s till around the start of WW1.

They were professional artists, many of whom trained in Paris and Antwerp at the height of the Impressionist movement. Their work is now in major public galleries world-wide including among many others Tate Britain, the V&A, Leeds, City Art Gallery, the Laing Gallery Newcastle and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia.

This exhibition affords the opportunity to compare a picture you may be considering buying with similar works in the public collection. If you have never considered buying a true work of art before, spend time looking at one of your favourites and try to imagine the joy of living with it, seeing it every day – and knowing that you are a custodian of a piece of our artistic heritage.

(Stephen) Frank Wasley 1848-1934

Frank Wasley was the first Northern Impressionist whose work we came across in the mid 1970s. He was roughly contemporary with the Staithes Group and painted from Whitby for many years in a similar style. Although we have seen at least one painting of Staithes by him I have never found any connection between him and the artists’ colony. We like his work so much we always have some in

stock – as can be seen below! – and have a number of his paintings in our own collection. We have an interesting illustrated booklet on Wasley and his work on sale for £5.
