Exhibition opens to showcase Island’s art

A new exhibition takes place this week on Holy Island.

The Northumbrian Exchanges Project (NX) and Holy Island Partnership are pleased to announce the launch of Island Perspectives at the St Cuthbert’s Centre.

The exhibition shows artworks and creative expressions produced by residents of Holy Island during a summer workshop programme, including photography, dance and movement, sonic mapping, theatre performance and drawing and painting.

NX is a one-year pilot collaboration between the departments of music, fine art, the Centre for Rural Economy and the business school at Newcastle University. The exhibition opened yesterday and runs until Saturday.
