About The Event

Established in 1921, Keighley Art Club (KAC) is probably the District’s oldest continuous art group. To celebrate this milestone of over 100 years of local amateur and professional artists coming together to make, share and learn art in good company, Keighley Art Club has co-curated a centenary exhibition and trail with Bradford District Museums and Galleries at Cliffe Castle Museum. 

As part of their temporary exhibition on the balcony, on display are artworks from every decade by current Keighley Art Club members, and past Club members’ artworks in private ownership and in Bradford District Museums and Galleries’ collection.

Visitors can also pick up a trail to see artworks and references to past Club members and their supporters on permanent display around Cliffe Castle Museum and Keighley Town Centre.

Free entry.
