Join us on Wednesday 1st June from 7.30pm and help us with our project planning session.
We’ll be thinking about how artists can respond to and create new works, performances and interventions as part of a Darlington based work called – blimey! bar
Ideas on a beer mat!
Upstairs at the Darlington Central Working Mens Club, 7 Beaumont Street, Darlington, DL1 5RN.
We’re really looking forward to our next artist talk on Wednesday 3rd June at 7.30pm in our usual venue, Darlington Central Club with photographer Louise Taylor.
Louise Taylor is a photographer and founding member of arts collective Wideyed, and along with colleagues Lucy Carolan and Richard Glynn has taken part in key photography festivals, received awards and bursaries, participated in international arts residences, and exhibited from England to India. From Mongolian nomads to County Durham shooting syndicates, her work focuses on rural issues, people and place. A strong connection to the land is the common thread throughout.

All welcome – Paul’s talk will start at 7.30pm, Wednesday 5th November, Central Club, Darlington
Paul Jex is a Newcastle based artist who is focused on the apparently tangential mechanisms of the presentation and approach of art. His work evaluates the process in which the audience participates with art, whether this be in newspapers, books, online or first hand in public domains such as galleries or other spaces of engagement.
At the centre of Paul’s methodology is the act of collecting, appropriating and referencing of images. With various levels of meaning supported by antidotes his work reveals a sequence of individual and holistic investigations.
As part of the blimey! artist talk, Paul will discuss the importance of chance and discovery, individual and group participation and in particular his on going exploration of the monochrome; the single colour in art.

Tomorrow night from 7.30pm will be our next Work in Progress meeting, where we invite people to bring in artwork or ideas for discussion and feedback. We will also be discussing and agreeing our programme of artist talks for next year. If you want to join us and take part, or offer suggestions for the artist talks please come along. Everyone welcome.
This meeting will take place in the downstairs bar, rather than upstairs at Darlington Central Working Men’s Club,7 Beaumont Street, Darlington, County Durham DL1 5RN
