The Parliament is a non-profit arts organization, on a mission to empower artists and transform York.
Our shows challenge artists to develop their craft & attract local buyers.
"Eyes on the World" exhibit
Jan. 5 - Feb. 12
The world we live in is a complicated place filled with tragic events, natural disasters, social issues, and complex political topics. Much of the world’s greatest art has come out of a reaction to current events.
We'll kick off the show on Jan. 5 with a First Friday event from 5-9 p.m. We'll also be a location for Puerto Rico Se Levanta - a 21 days of giving event for Puerto Rico. Come learn more.
We host renowned events to attract the masses.
Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School
Every second Friday, 8 p.m.
Dr. Sketchy’s is the monthly art party where life drawing and cabaret collide!
Every second Friday of the month you’ll be dazzled and inspired by glamorous models with gorgeous costumes in Parliament Arts’ cozy gallery surroundings as you sketch, draw, or paint — have fun and enjoy yourself among other creative types in a cheeky, creative, music-filled atmosphere.
All skill levels, from stick figures to Rembrandt-level practicing artists, are welcome. Bring your own art supplies and come draw with us!
