An exhibition featuring 40 years of an artist’s work has opened at Alnwick’s Bailiffgate Museum.

The display, which started on Wednesday and runs until Sunday, May 11, captures the creativity of Andrew Watchorn.

While the work, produced over four decades, is abstract, it is essentially rooted in the landscape and is a response to the wider world around us.

As part of the exhibition, a Friends of the Bailiffgate Museum event is being held tomorrow from 6.30pm. The session, a Friends-only evening, will give people the chance to discuss the display with Andrew.

There will also be work on sale and a free glass of wine and nibbles at the event, which is free to Friends.

To sign up to become a Friend, visit the attraction’s website, bailiffgatemuseum.co.uk or call 01665 605847.

Andrew is multi-talented and is also well-known for his performances on the Northumbrian small pipes.

And on Thursday, April 24, Andrew and his wife Margaret will perform a concert of traditional music from Northumberland and beyond. The gig, which is entitled Living The Tradition, takes place at the museum from 7.30pm and is suitable for the whole family.

Admission is £7.50, with accompanied U12s free. There will also be refreshments.
