Nidderdale visual arts

nidderdale visual arts is a registered charity (no. 117618) established in 2005 with the aim of promoting the contribution which the visual arts makes to Nidderdale, both in terms of enhancing the quality of life for residents and in supporting the local economy.

Made up of local people who contribute their ideas, knowledge and time to a wide range of activities, nva works to create new opportunities for people to learn about and experience visual arts and seeks to make Nidderdale a place of excellence for the creative industries.

In addition to providing the number 6 studio gallery, nva has been instigator or key partner in many innovative projects. These range from community art events to the creation of “The Coldstones Cut”, a massive sculpture by Andrew Sabin which was constructed in 2010 on Greenhow Hill above Pateley Bridge.
