How EDAS & the committee first began
The first Easingwold Art Exhibition was held in 2004, run by one enthusiastic individual and funded by Hambleton District Council. It became a regular and popular event, but after a few years, the council withdrew its financial support.
To ensure the continuation of the event, Easingwold Art Exhibitors Group was formed, with all artists participating in the Easingwold Art Exhibition automatically becoming group members. A committee was elected - all local artists who had taken part in the Exhibition - which took over the organisation of the Easingwold Art Exhibtion.
At the end of 2013 the group's name changed to Easingwold & District Art Society, better reflecting what we do. We are the same non profit making community organisation we were - just with a new name.
