Among the many exhibitors will be Harrogate-based dealerships Sutcliffe Fine Art and Walker Galleries, specializing in a fine selection of traditional and contemporary works of art by both local and international artists.

All eyes will be on Walker Galleries’ painting by George Weatherill (1810-1890), often described as ‘The Turner of the North’. ‘The East Cliff, Whitby’ is a fine painted watercolor depicting the coastal light over the cliffs at Whitby with fishing boats in the distance. Weatherill (1810-1890) is known as one of Yorkshire’s finest watercolorists; he spent time studying the work of JMW Turner, and this had a profound influence on his style.

Showing furniture and decorative pieces will be Mark Buckley Antiques late Victorian and early 20th century walnut furniture and bronzes, while Melody Antiques will offer country furniture and collectables.
