Artist Talk – Wed 2nd August

Following on from blimey X we are pleased to announce that blimey! prize winner Carole Thorne AND the winner of the public vote Sharon Simpson will be discussing their work at our next artist talk. Each artist will have examples of their work and will be discussing their creative practice. There’ll also be an opportunity at the end to ask the artists any questions about their work.

The talk will take place upstairs in Vesuvio Wines, 3A Houndgate Darlington, Co Durham on Wed 2nd August from 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome and there is no charge for the talk.

We have some copies of the 10 postcards we got printed as part of the event, which we’ll have with us at the talk. For any artists who for whatever reason couldn’t manage to collect their artwork from the last day of the exhibition, we’ll have those with us as well.

blimey X – exhibition and prize

The blimey X exhibition has been a great success, with over 200 visitors over the course of the weekend, visiting our two day exhibition.

The preview event included us announcing the winner of the blimey! £500 prize – Carole Thorne for her work ‘The Gathering’ (see image below). The event was well attended with Pimms and cake on offer, as well as the chance to pick up one of the 10 printed postcards.
