A POPULAR venue in East Yorkshire is preparing to host an open art exhibition to celebrate HRH Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee.

Artists are being asked to seek inspiration from the Queen’s Jubilee and submit a 2D piece of artwork relating to Her Majesty’s 70-year reign to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC).

PAC director, Janet Farmer, said: “This is a really special moment in our history, so we wanted to present an exhibition that reflects this. Artworks can be inspired by any aspect of her majesty’s 70-year reign, and is open to creative interpretation.

“Our open exhibitions are always really popular with both artists and visitors alike - and with so many local talented artists, we are very much looking forward to unveiling this very special commemorative exhibition.”

Artworks should be framed or on canvas with D rings attached. Selected works will be included within an exhibition that will take place in PAC’s studio from Tuesday May 3 to Sunday June 19.
