Darlington artist starts new project – Ballroom Beehives

James Paterson, a painter and friend of blimey!, based in Darlington has started work on a new project, based at Lingfield Point Darlington. James is researching the social history of the Paton and Baldwins factory which used to be based at Lingfield Point, with the aim of producing new work to be shown at the upcoming Festival of Thrift, Sat 21st & Sun 22nd September.

The project is called The Beehive Ballroom, and James is requesting that anyone who has memories or photographs from events associated with Paton & Baldwins get in touch with him through his website here.

James has previously kindly donated work to one of our previous events, blimey! Social, which was used to raise funds through an auction of donated artworks.
