Annual Exhibition 2018



at 7.00PM  


In 1997 Ryedale Special Families became a registered charity, took on its first employee, a Development Officer and moved into its first office, which was based in Welburn Hall School, near Kirkbymoorside. Since that time we have moved to our current location in Old Malton, expanded our workforce to over 30 full and part time employees, and now provide support to over 400 families throughout the Ryedale area.

​This years exhibition was a success with 42no paintings sold at a total value in excess of £4000.

Overall most of the elements of the event were slightly down on 2016 including the overall profit of just over £200. 

​Next years event will endeavour to improve these results which may mean increased advertising and promotions

open daily 10am-5pm

September sees the return of our annual exhibition. The exhibition showcases the fabulous work of our members. It always promises to be varied and original. The exhibition is growing every year and we are really excited to see what this year brings! 

Our annual exhibition runs for just over a week and is open daily during that time. It's a great opportunity for visitors (and fellow artists) to purchase original work from local artists.
