Two internationally acclaimed artists are to give talks at their studios in Wooler this month as part of a new art festival.

James Hugonin and Sarah Bray will show their latest work-in-progress, explain what motivates their work and answer questions from the audience during the sessions.

The events are part of the Glendale Art Festival which runs throughout June.

Both artists have exhibited in major venues across the UK and Europe, and sold works as far afield as Hong Kong and Australia.

The first two talks will be tomorrow at the pair’s studios at High Humbleton, and the second event will be next Saturday.

Space is limited so tickets, which are free, are available in advance from the Cheviot Centre in Wooler.

Other events during the month-long festival include special exhibitions at art galleries in Glendale, open days at local art studios, an exhibition by Wooler Camera Club of artists at work and an exhibition of children’s work based on a Matisse theme. Wooler U3A is also making a Matisse-themed montage which will be on display during the festival.

The highlight is an exhibitionof prints from Matisse cut-outs in the Cheviot Centre on tour from London.
