The Moors National Park Centre Danby YO21 2NB

The fagship art space for the North York Moors National Park is their beautiful Inspired  at The Moors National Park Centre in Danby. It's got one simple remit – to display changing exhibitions by artists who draw their inspiration from "the landscape, life and colour of the North York Moors", with shows held concurrently in the light-filled main gallery and a smaller side-gallery. The programme runs year-round, which means there's always something different to see, whether it's an exhibition by the likes of noted landscape photographer Joe Cornish or a group show by the regulars of Brigantia, an association of Yorkshire artists and craftworkers. Photographers, ceramicists and mixed-media artists are often represented in combined exhibitions, while annual highlights usually include a show by Cleveland Fibre Arts – whose spinners, knitters, quilters and felt-makers set up in the main gallery – and November's Christmas Fair, which sees around 35 artists and crafters taking over the whole Moors Centre for an entire weekend. What's more, entry to all the exhibitions, as well as the various special "meet the artists" events, is free – which we call pretty inspiring as well.
