Charlie Parker - Portraits

Charlie Parker - Portraits

14 September 2018 - 27 October 2018

Charlie Parker is a local artist based in Durham. He is entirely self taught and has painted and drawn seriously since the early 1990's. Charlie also attends regular life-drawing classes and studies the great masters at museums, when possible.

During his time spent drawing and painting, Charlie has attempted a variety of subjects, but over the recent years he has developed a real passion for drawing and painting the human form. The solo exhibition of his work features his latest portraits and was inspired by the challenge to represent the unique personality of each subject.

Northern Perspective – Godfrey Irving

Northern Perspective – Godfrey Irving

12 October 2018 - 10 November 2018

Granary + Theatre Foyer Exhibition

Northern Perspective is an exhibition which reflects the life experiences which are part of culture that we call the north.  This exhibition represents a tapestry of life in the North East past, present and future

The exhibition is composed mainly of hand produced limited edition intaglio etchings, which represent the artist’s life experience here in the north.

Having lived and worked here all of his life the culture is woven into the artist’s existence and his impressions cover work and the environment in shipyards, coalmines, glass works, foundries and engineering works, that were and are part of the life of our area and its history and people.

Godfrey’s unique style is also used to good effect portraying the landscapes, cities and dramatic environments that characterise our area.

We hope you will enjoy this exhibition and reflect upon its contribution to what is part of our Northern Culture and soul.  It is a unique collection of artist’s impressions that make a Northern Perspective worthy of reflecting on.

All works are for sale.
