Local artist Gabrielle Naptali created the sculpture Archway for the Children (Portal to the Way) to highlight the amount of plastic left behind on Scarborough beach and attitudes towards 'throwaway' single use plastics. It can be seen in Scarborough Market Hall during World Wellbeing week from Monday 24th June.
The painting which shows the lifeboat passing Scarborough Lighthouse in a choppy North Sea on its way back in from a call will be auctioned later this year with all proceeds from the sale being donated to the Scarborough RNLI.
Nick is a keen supporter of the RNLI and learnt to sail himself a few years back. Nick’s artwork is inspired by the east coast where he lives and also Scotland where he likes to go on holiday.
