Established in 2005 this will the 3rd Art In The Pen held at Thirsk Auction Mart. Art In The Pen has been running since 2005 at Skipton Auction Mart and with over 330 exhibitors in total at both events there is a very wide and varied array of art ranging from Photography, Glass, Sculpture, Textiles, Metal, Ceramics, Art, Jewellery, Homeware, Paper, Wood and Prints.
Art in the Pen is a well established and highly regarded art and craft fair that runs each year in Thirsk and Skipton Auction Marts. From humble beginnings, the event has developed into what many now consider to be the North’s leading art event.
Back in 2005, Art in the Pen started out as a relatively small number of artists transforming cattle pens into galleries to sell their original work. The organic and informal nature of the event really captured the attention of visitors, who now return each year in increasing numbers. Today, Art in the Pen has flourished into a sprawling event, with an abundance of creativity and craftsmanship at every turn.
The continued success of Art in the Pen is partly down to its relaxed and friendly environment. The events are a great way for visitors to strike up conversations with our artists and meet other art and craft enthusiasts. Whether you’re a collector or buying for the first time, Art in the Pen provides a wonderful opportunity to discover new, emerging and established talent.
