The artists behind a new exhibition focusing on developing arts in and around Newbiggin will be giving a talk about their work.

Newbiggin-based arts collective, KEAP Creative, is currently running an exhibition at Woodhorn Museum in Ashington, that features paintings, ceramics, drawings and photography.

The Moving On exhibition contains art that is inspired by the artists’ own personal experiences and their former studio space at Woodhorn Church.

There will be a chance to hear from the artists themselves about their art and inspriations at two special talking tours of the exhibition.

The Newbiggin artists originally worked from their studio in the inspirational 11th century St Mary’s Church at Woodhorn Village but now Eva Hartley, Peter Seddon, Alan Vinters, Alan Driver, Pamela Shears, Dennis Inglis, and Pip Driver all work from their own individual studios.

The work on display is a response from each artist to influences and developments in their own lives since the group formed including an exploration of the external physical environment, a response to the very special environment in their original Woodhorn Church studio space, the effects of personal events and experiences and the journey with art itself.

The tours will be held on Saturday, March 15, at 11am and 2pm.

The talks are free but anyone who wants to attend is advised to reserve a place in advance either in person at the museum or by calling (01670) 624455.

KEAP Creative: Moving On runs until May 11.
