About us

The beautiful North York Moors National Park, with its heather moorland, ancient woodland, lush green dales and rugged coastline, proves a real magnet for artists who come from far and wide to capture this amazing place.

Each artist brings their own unique take on the landscape and wildlife of the North York Moors, capturing the changing light and seasons in a variety of different media, from glass and jewellery makers to painters and photographers.

The Inspired by... gallery at The Moors National Park Centre was created as a showcase for art inspired by the landscape, life and colour of the North York Moors. Exhibitions change on a regular basis so each visit presents a different perspective on the surrounding scenery.

For details of current exhibitions, go to www.northyorkmoors.org.uk/inspiredby
