Greenfield Arts Gallery Events

As we begin our Autumn programme of events we look to what wonders are coming soon from The Greenfield Gallery. 

Our latest exhibition ‘In and Around Town’ by Mike Connell will open on Thursday 7th September with a preview event on Wednesday 6th September 6pm to 8pm. The work on show depicts life in and around Newton Aycliffe. Mike describes his style as realistic but characterful and is based on his own observation and experience. Accompanying the exhibition is memorabilia and personal artefacts from Mike’s childhood growing up in Newton Aycliffe during the 50's and 60's, including items his parents received as some of the first families to move to the New Town. This exhibition highlights the importance of art as a form of expression for people of all walks of life, offering a creative space where visitors can experience personal accounts of Newton Aycliffe’s local history.

We then welcome Neida Pearson with her exhibition ‘World within a World’, running through October. Her work is an exploration into another world, one that only exists in her imagination. Her studies of colour and pattern have become the language of her paintings leaving the viewer to the task of translation. Neida uses pen, ink, watercolour and gouache, to create some truly wonderful effects.

Finally, to accompany this year’s group art exhibition by Interface Arts in November and December, we are hosting a professional art and craft fair, showcasing the work of the centre and local artists. We are therefore inviting applications from potential stall holders for the event, held in December – this can be handmade, or hand designed items, gifts or examples of larger works, as well as artisan food items. We see this as a wonderful opportunity to highlight the talent and creativity of our local crafters and artists, with a chance for some Christmas shopping for those who attend the event. If you are happy to demonstrate your craft at your table as well this would be a plus! Tables will cost £10.00, for further information or to request a booking form please contact us.

For more information on any of the information here, check out the website or speak with one of our lovely team members on 01325 379048 or info@greenfield-arts.co.uk.

Gallery Opening Times: Monday – Thursday 10am – 9pm and Friday 10am – 4pm.
