william tyllier

this exhibition at mima and platformA at middlesbrough station
is so worth a visit! Platform arts said they would accomodate a group visit as we
and could view all artists studios in there as well.

Gill's Pictures

I keep badgering people to send me images to put on the website, so it's nice to see a couple of new ones from Gill Place. Thanks for sending them Gill, I love the colours in these, especially the still life.

Discover Middlesbrough Festival

I don't know how many people are aware of the 'Discover Middlesbrough Festival', which takes place in the last couple of weeks of October. It includes quite a lot of art related events including  new William Tillier exhibitions at MIMA and the Platform A Gallery, together with a talk on Fri 25th. The Dorman Museum is having a 'Pencil and Paper' Exhibition running until Jan 26th. Dundas House hosts the Navigator North Spen Studios on Saturday 19th and there are more open studios and exhibitions at Gilkes Street Artists and Platform Arts on Sat 26th.

Booklets about the festival are available at the Town hall and libraries or you can download one from

Runswick Bay

In September the group hired the Fisherman's Institute at Runswick Bay for two intensive painting days, which proved to be enjoyable and productive for those who attended, especially as the weather was beautiful.. Hopoefully, more information and pictures will follow.
