The Hive at Nenthead will celebrate reopening from lock-down with an exhibition of new paintings of Alston Moor by four well-known local artists.
The exhibition is part of the Alston Landscape Art Town Initiative, a new scheme to bring visitors to the area and recognition for its fine landscapes and its strong tradition of landscape art and photography.
Works by Gillie Cawthorne, Ben Haslam, Lionel Playford and Helen Johnson will be displayed and available to buy. Prints and other art materials will also be on sale.
The Landscapes of Alston Moor exhibition will open on Saturday, 4 July, and run for four weeks to Sunday, 2 August, inclusive. It will be open from Thursdays to Sundays 10am-3pm initially and the artists will attend on selected afternoons for talks (details to follow).
“Our newly-formed Board of Trustees is delighted to have the opportunity to launch our first exhibition in tandem with the launch of the newly-renamed Hive at Nenthead,” says ALATI chair, Kathy Reeds. “We look forward to working with them to provide a range of arts-based activities for both local people and tourists showing the natural beauty of the Alston Moor landscape.”
