ONE of Yorkshire's most prestigious annual art exhibitions has attracted a record number of entries this year.

The acclaimed Ones To Watch exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills' art gallery in Farsley is now open.

It is focused on talented emerging artists and makers with Yorkshire connections.

Sunny Banks Mills' new arts director Anna Turzynski said: "This year's Ones To Watch has been an amazing introduction to this special gallery and I have been blown away by both the quality and the quantity of the entries.

"It was an incredibly difficult job for the judges to whittle down the original record 204 entries to the 40 now on show."

The exhibition explores topics including politics, history, culture, sexuality and the environment.

Anna added: "Overall, this is an incredibly immersive exhibition, both in terms of the quality of the work on display and in the power of some of that work to stop you in your tracks.

"The talent and the potential of this year's Ones To Watch are amazing."

Sunny Bank Mills is located at Town Street, Farsley.

Ones To Watch is open in the art gallery between 10am and 4pm Tuesday to Saturday, and from 12pm until 4pm on Sunday, until April 21. 

Entry is free.
