After much excitement we opened our doors last Friday night and for the Coastival Festival weekend, to launch the exhibition and this spectacular building as a vibrant new art space. We even had a visit from BBC Radio York who were frantically trying to beat the clock to get to the treasure for their weekly treasure hunt. We were the treasure!

In Transit’ is a group exhibition of established and emerging artists working in a variety of media, from sculpture and painting to projection and installation. We seek to bring together a variety of styles and approaches to represent the diversity of contemporary art, with artists invited to work as directly or loosely as they wish, in response to the theme and the Old Parcels Office setting. Taking the notions of space and place as its starting point, the exhibition showcases current themes and methodologies in contemporary art and present juxtapositions of static and dynamic installations that aim to challenge and celebrate the bold architecture and space that the unusual Old Parcels Office site provides.
Alexandra Carr, Caroline Lambard, Caroline Underwood, Jennifer Hooper, Owen Bullett, Rosaleigh Harvey-Otway, Rosie Munro Kerr, and Rosie Reed-Gold were the exhibiting artists, each producing a unique limited edition print to accompany the show. You can see the prints here. For sales please contact the individual artists.
