Art and Archaeology exhibition at Thixendale

Visitors are being encouraged to go along to a rural art and archaeology exhibition which was launched on Monday 22nd July and runs until Sunday 4th August.

The Hanging Grimston Community Arts Project Exhibition was opened at Thixendale Village Hall by Marcus Jecock of Historic England, who has directed several digs at the Hanging Grimston medieval settlement in North Yorkshire.

The exhibition has been inspired by the archaeological finds that have been unearthed during the digs but extends beyond that particular site.

The popup event celebrates the different ways in which the local landscape can be interpreted through art and literature and houses a wide range of exhibits including textiles, ceramics and paintings.

The High Wolds Heritage Group is holding the Art & Archaeology exhibition to celebrate the culmination of five years archaeological research at the Deserted Mediaeval Village of Hanging Grimston. It is taking place at Thixendale village hall from Tuesday 23 July until Sunday August 4th 2019 inclusive, 1pm to 7pm.

These include works created by professional artists as well as local people with little or no previous experience.

The exhibition owes much to the Thixendale Craft Group, members of which have shown a willingness to try new crafts in the run-up to the event.
The results of their experimentations offer a multimedia exhibition which captures the colours and contours of the Yorkshire Wolds and visitors can also learn more about the dig at Hanging Grimston.
