Barnard Castle and Teesdale Art Society Annual Exhibition

The Witham is delighted to welcome Barnard Castle Art Society back to the building for its Annual Exhibition, A Year in Art. In 2018 the exhibition will spread throughout the building from The Gallery into the Dispensary Gallery.

Date: Friday 12 January to Saturday 10 February 2018
Time: 10am - 4pm Tuesday to Saturday
Price: Free admission

Barnard Castle and Teesdale Art Society is a thriving group of friendly and enthusiastic amateur artists with varying levels of experience.

The 2017 programme of events  set our  members off in all sorts of creative directions.
The winter meetings hosted occasional visiting tutors  who refreshed members’ skills in the use of pastels, clay, needle-felt and Batik. Other tutors revised  painting theory with us such as the mixing of colours, how to convey perspective, and how to depict water.

The summer sketching programme took members out of doors to sketch in locations all along the dale, from Langdon Beck in the west to Headlam Hall near Darlington. Historic bridges and castle keeps;  wild woodland and formal gardens; panoramic views and detailed observations of farm buildings- these have all been captured in pencil and paint, in sunshine and rain. When necessary, the tradition of plein air painting was modified by looking out of the windows of  strategically parked cars.
Members have also enjoyed stimulating visits to the Print Exhibition in Rheged, Penrith and to Keswick galleries, to savour other artists’ work. You can read more about the society on their website here.

The Exhibition in the Witham Gallery promises a visual treat, with finished works in all the media they have used this year, and presentations about the year’s activities.
The Art Society meetings are held on Monday afternoons in the Guide Hall, Birch Road, from September to Easter. Throughout the summer, members meet out of doors for sketching locally and further afield by car and minibus.
Membership fee is £25pa. New members  are always welcome.
