Visiting the beautiful North East…

Posted by on May 26, 2015 in Blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off

Here in the North East we are often associated with ‘Cloth Caps’ ‘Whippets’ and drinking lots of beer!

What a lot of people do not realise is just how much artistic talent we have here in the North East and Northumberland. There were many applications and we were very happy to be accepted to be part of this special feature…we hope you like it!

Another Days Filming…

We are very excited to welcome back the Creative North film crew to the gallery. On Thursday we will have a young artist come to the gallery and talk with gallery manager/curator, Catherine Howard.

As all artists know, it is a difficult task to get your artwork showcased in any gallery, but hopefully Catherine will be able to give a few helpful tips on how to do this.

John Hebborn Fine Art

Posted by on Apr 21, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off

John was born in Oxford but moved to the North East over 25 years ago.

He grew up loving art and the outdoors, and now enjoys the rural isolation of his cottage in the Durham Dales where the stunning scenery is a constant source of inspiration. A synthesis of experience is captured in John’s work which makes his paintings strong in mood with a tone of thoughtfulness and solitude.

Artist Jenny Ulyatt

Posted by on Apr 13, 2015 in Blog | Comments Off

Jenny lives and paints in Durham City taking inspiration from the Tyne and Wear Valleys and the Northeast Coast.  Jenny is a self taught artist and has painted in oil and pastel for a number of years.  In 2013 she took up the challenge of watercolour, and instantly fell in love with its unique ability to give vibrant translucent colours that are both powerful and subtle.

Martin’s work is quirky and fun-we think it would look great in any childs bedroom or an office with a boss with a sense of humour!
