The Exhibition

The Exhibition in the Civic Hall is one of the biggest open exhibitions in the country featuring work by over 400 professional & amateur artists. As Artweek is a fundraising event, all work submitted must be for sale. A commission of 20% is paid by artists on all sales made in the Exhibition, Market & Fringe. All proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

 

The Fringe

Every year, Holmfirth Artweek encourages businesses and individuals around Holmfirth and the Holme Valley to create exhibition space and open their doors to showcase the work of artists from across the region.

Last year, 21 venues made up our fringe exhibition – featuring an exciting and diverse array of work from photographers, painters, textile-makers, ceramicists, sculptors and more…

Support Us

All the people you see front of house at the Exhibition are volunteers – stewards, tearoom staff, sales desk staff, raffle ticket sellers (not to mention those behind the scenes who you may not see – organisers, screen builders, lighting fitters, picture hangers, administrators, design and marketing, etc.).  The whole event is run by volunteers and on each day we need 80 people to keep things running smoothly. So if you can spare a few hours please get in touch.
