Art takes centre stage in two north Northumberland village’s this weekend.
A new display of John Fieldhouse’s work is to be shown at Lady Waterford Hall, in Ford, tomorrow and Saturday, culminating with an auction for HospiceCare North Northumberland.
On Sunday, Felton’s Gallery 45 holds the official opening of its artists’ studios.
Fieldhouse’s free-to-attend exhibition, entitled Elements, will be staged at the hall from 10.30am to 9pm tomorrow and 10.30am to 6pm on Saturday. The artist, known for his loosely brushed watercolours, will attend both days to discuss his pictures.
The auction will take place on Saturday at 7pm, following a formal, hour-long preview from 6pm. For details of what is showing and the work’s guide price, visit tiny url.com/pmp84kq.
Sunday represents a milestone for Gallery 45, as it unveils its artists’ studios, which will feature work by glass artist Helen Grierson, hand knits by Judith Goodfellow, artist Renira Barnes, photographer Paula Ansley and leather work by company Awl by Hand.
All of them will attend the event, which runs from 3pm to 5pm, and will be opened by Judith O’Reilly.
Artists Cheryl Jackson, Frances Anderson and Emma George will also welcome people to their workspaces.
