Members of the East Riding Artists group are exhibiting their work in the transepts of Beverley Minster from Monday 6 May to Monday 14 May.

The exhibition is part of the “fringe events” of the East Riding arts festival called Artwaves, mainly based in Bridlington, but now expanding across East Yorkshire.

Gerry Grant, from Fangfoss Pottery, is exhibiting his new range of pure white pots, based on a wave theme.

He threw the pots on the wheel almost to the point of collapse, so they look like a wave breaking.

Another artist taking part is Rhona Rowley who recently won a prize awarded by the Mayor of Pocklington, for her outstanding watercolour paintings displayed at Pocklington Arts Centre.

ERA was formed in 2005 by a group of practising visual artists and has now expanded to over 120 members.

The artists come together in a network and meet regularly exchange information, organise workshops and arrange exhibitions. Examples of their work can be seen on the www.eastridingartists.co.uk website.

Lyn Grant, a committee member, said: “We are always looking for possible venues for exhibitions and are thrilled to be able to show some of our work in Beverley Minster. We look forward to welcoming visitors and talking to them about the work we do.”
