If you’ve been to ArtWaves before then you know we finish around 5pm. This time we’re trying something a little different and have partnered with galleries and studios across Bridlington to expand the festival into the evening of the Saturday.
We are offering the opportunity to explore the local art galleries and artist studios all of whom are keeping their doors open well into the evening and showcasing their offerings for residents and visitors alike.
To make things even easier we are introducing a bus service to take you from one stop to the next and what’s even better, this is free.
We need to gauge numbers prior to releasing the bus timetable (anticipated to be released in April) and so if you are wanting a seat you must book a place.Book tickets
The galleries and studios taking part in the tour are listed below:
- Bridlington Contemporary
A Contemporary Art Gallery and Studio in the burgeoning cultural quarter of Bridlington. Run by a team of volunteers passionate about bringing contemporary art to Bridlington Yorkshire.
- Gallery 49
Gallery Forty-Nine is a contemporary art gallery occupying two floors of a Georgian listed building in the Old Town area of Bridlington, East Yorkshire.
- Mark and Sue Lozynskyj Home Studio
Mark and Sue welcome you to their rambling house and garden. There are a few steps to access the exhibition mainly on ground level. Mark says: 'I am interested in painting with strong vibrant colours, often using abstracted forms from landscape or still life. Drawing is especially important to me, I like the spontaneity.’ Sue works mostly in 3d using mainly ceramics and is particularly interested in poetry and this informs her artwork.
An example of Mark and Sue's work is pictured on the event detail.
- M'lk Wood
A Creative Studio Gallery based in Bridlington, East Yorkshire.
- Leon Leigh Studio - Artist and Sculptor

The studio/workshop for Carlo Verda’s jewellery design & sculpture and Joy Johnson’s fine art work. Joy’s paintings and collages are inspired by music and the local environment.

As well as our own work we give art students the opportunity to show their work in a gallery setting.
