ARTISTS and designers will join together for an annual charity art event in aid of Syria's refugees.

Contributing artists which have focussed on a 'Fragments of Nature' theme, will display work inspired by their own perspectives of this year's subject.

Their work will be displayed as part of the annual 'Art In The Shed' exhibition that will take place in Osmotherley on Saturday, May 25, Sunday, May 26 and Bank Holiday Monday on May 27.

Donations raised from refreshments and a portion of profits from the sale of artwork will go towards the 'Blue Mission Organisation,' which supports Syrian refugees living in Lebanon.

The organiser said they expect more visitors will attend, compared with the same event held in the village last year.

Exhibition organiser Jane Thorniley-Walker, whose own work will feature in the exhibition, added: "This year I have been inspired to capture sunrises over Black Hambleton – visible from my house.

"Despite the 6.30am starts to the day, I have been delighted with the results and fascinated by the tremendous differences in light effects and colour."

A tour around her garden-based studio, a selection of homemade cakes and refreshments will be available during the event.

All donations received for refreshments will go to the charity, whilst fifteen percent of sales from individual pieces of art will also be donated.

The exhibition will be held at the Garden Studio on Back Lane in Osmotherley, although visitors will have to find parking elsewhere.
