This collaborative exhibition brings together the dramatic and expressive artwork of painter Bob Mitchell with the crisp sharp images of photographer Carl Mole.
Both their works document the local landscape and have been walking similar paths, but their interpretations and representations are very different, creating a complimentary contrast in this intriguing exhibition.
Bob Mitchell has a particular interest in the intersection of man, industry and nature. Over the course of a year, he has undertaken a series of walks across Durham and Teesside. The images emanating from these walks comprise a record of a landscape moulded by industrial change, and a reflection upon the processes of regeneration which re driven by both man and nature.
Carl Mole’s photographs call attention to the local landscape and the people who inhabit it. These photographs are the results from an ongoing project to document the area surrounding the mouth of the River Tees; an ever changing landscape of industry and nature, where people’s leisure activities and work sit side-by-side.
Parking and Entry are free and refreshments will be provided.
