The First Catalogue issued for

The Fylingdales Group in 1925

By kind permission from a private collection.

The Fylingdales Group of Artists have been in existence since 1925, initially formed in Denton Hawley's studio in Robin Hood's Bay with just eight artists at the first meeting, their aim being to exhibit Yorkshire pictures. Some confusion was caused with the opening of the early warning radar station later on, but there is no connection. Twelve members created the first exhibition of  which was held at The Church Rooms Robin Hood's Bay between the third of August to 15th August 1925.

The first meeting of the Group was held on 25th June, 1925 followed shortly by the inaugural exhibition which was held in the Church Rooms, Robin Hood's Bay. Dame Ethel Walker, A.R.A., Owen Bowen and Ulric Walmsley were among the founder members of the Group.  In 1929 the membership was increased again to 16 artists, then to 20 in 1938. With the second world war looming the group disbanded holding its last exhibition in 1939. Due to the tireless efforts of Mr. Harold Todd the group was brought back together with an Exhibition in 1948, Mr Todd served as Secretary for many years. Membership was again increased to its present number of just 22.

The Group usually hold one Exhibition per year at Pannett Art Gallery, Pannett Park, Whitby, the venue being first mentioned in the Group minutes in 1952. We meet formally once a year after our Annual Exhibition. A glance at our list of members will show that we are scattered over a large area, it is quite a measure of strength of the group that Members are prepared to travel quite long distances to attend our Annual General Meeting. The main bond between us is a love of Yorkshire, its coastline and of painting.

In recent years we have held other Exhibitions at different venues, including Hartlepool Art Gallery,  Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead and Beverley Art Gallery. During the years, many well know Artists have been members including Algernon Newton, Barbara Hepworth, R.A.Roland Hill, Florence Hess, Albert Pile, Fred Williams, Will Taylor, William Dealtry and many others.
