Curated Space Exhibition Private View

Hello,

We would cordially like to invite you to the next fabulous exhibition opening at pythongallery on THURSDAY 5th October, from 7-9pm.

 

It is a Group show entitled Curated Space.

The work has been brought together by artist Jo Davis and includes the work of Steff Mitchell, Helen Birmingham, Jo Davis, Sally Gatie, Adam King, John Leaf, Andrew Cheetham, Kane Cunningham, Jake Jones, Peter Hicks, Andy Black and Bren Head.

 

This diverse group of artists  are connected by the geographic area in which they live and work.  They do not generally show their work together but they have in common the North Yorkshire Coast where they have made their home.

Inspired by landscape, the rugged coastline and geographical isolation, these artists have come together to show their work in this engaging and visually stunning exhibition. 

 

As always we will be offering refreshments and nibbles courtesy of TP CoffeeHouse, our amazing on site partners, so come along and enjoy an evening of great art and vitality.

 

Hope to see you there,

Peter Heselton

David Griffiths Artist Talk

We would like to invite you along to a Free Artist’s Talk event at pythongallery.

 

On Thursday 15th June, 6:30-8:30 we are very pleased to be hosting a talk by currently exhibiting artist David Griffiths.

 

It will provide a great opportunity for visitors to listen to David explain his themes, methodologies and techniques and to ask questions regarding his photographic artform.

 

 

David is a photographic artist based in the North east of England.

 

His digital artworks are a blend of true representation and stylistic interpretation. The results are unique and vibrant multi-faceted images often merging between reality and abstraction.

 

This distinctively personalised and imaginative style of contemporary work captures fine detail from the natural world, dynamic shapes from architecture and emotion from portraiture.

 

In his work David explores complex aspects of visual depth, perspective, colour and form combined with the subtle use of shadow, light and reflection.

 

David places no limitations in his quest to capture diverse and interesting images which develop into original pieces of fine art.

 

 

 

It promises to be an informative, relaxed and enjoyable event and we hope that you will be able to attend.

 

As always, refreshments will be available from our wonderful partners TP Coffehouse.

So please come along for a wonderful visual and thought provoking evening.

 

 

Best Wishes, Peter

 

P.S. Please pass this information on to all who would like to attend.


Special Model Railway Open Day

Special Model Railway Open Day

Python Gallery Announces Special Model Railway Open Day

 

Python Gallery has announced a unique open day in partnership with the South Pelaw Modelling Group and Python Properties for the public to view a memorable model railway of a historic North East junction.

 

The open day on Sunday June 4th at Python Gallery, within Royal Middlehaven House in Middlesbrough, will give members of the public an opportunity to view the running 39ft by 18ft model of the South Pelaw junction site for the first time.

 

The model, which celebrates the history of the Tyne Dock to Consett line between the 1950s and 1960s, has been under meticulous construction by the group of seven enthusiastic model-makers for more than seven years and is still a work in progress.

 

Due to its grand assembly size the team, which is made up of members travelling from as far afield as Sheffield, moved the model to Royal Middlehaven House in January so that they could finally piece together all the sections for the first time.

 

Away from Royal Middlehaven House, all members work at home on the provision of locomotions and rolling stock, the majority of which is hand-built.

 

The South Pelaw Junction was a vital junction on the Tyne Dock to Consett railway line with connections to the East Coast mainline at Ouston Junction, Tyne Dock via Washington as well as local collieries via Stella Gill. It was abandoned in 1984 and redeveloped as part of a coast-to-coast cycle way.

 

Model-maker Martin Lloyd, said: “It’s an obsession and a real passion for everyone involved. Together with Python Gallery we are excited to give members of the public and fellow enthusiasts an opportunity to see the track come to life for the first-time.

 

We are incredibly grateful to Python Properties, the commercial property owner of Royal Middlehaven House, for the space they have provided and for all photographs we have received over the years from members of the public of the original track, which have been instrumental in bringing it to life.

 

Collectively we have invested thousands of hours of meticulous work so far, and since moving to Royal Middlehaven House we have finally been able to assemble it to its grand scale and focus on rebuilding two corners and relaying the track to ensure it runs perfectly.”

 

The model will be displayed at exhibitions around the country starting in 2018.

Venue: Python Gallery, Royal Middlehaven House, 21 Gosford Street, Middlesbrough, TS2 1BB

Open Day: Sunday June 4th 2017

Time: 10.00am till 5.00pm

Admission: Free

Ian Taylor Artist’s Talk

Ian Taylor Artist's Talk

Ian Taylor. Artist Talk and closing event.

On the final evening of his show at pythongallery, Artist Ian Taylor will be giving a talk about his work.

Ian who has lived in New Zealand for many years now spent his formative years on Teesside.

He says, “ I was raised on a council estate in Dormanstown in the 50’s and 60’s. They were halcyon days for me. Football in the streets, a working class community of steel and I.C,I. Workers. A secure environment in which to grow”

The work of Ian Taylor speaks eloquently of a life spent collecting impressions from multiple visual and cultural sources. 

Like a fine tuning of divergent experiences, there exists in his work a stunning visual synergy between past and present.

This will present a great opportunity to hear Ian reflect on his images, themes and creative motivations.

Refreshments will be available from tp coffeehouse.

The event is Free to attend.

Times: 6:30-8:30. (Talk approx 7pm)

pythongallery, 21 Gosford Street, Middlesbrough, TS2 1BB

Ian Taylor Private View
We would like to invite you to the next amazing exhibition at pythongallery.
On Friday 9th September, from 6:30-8:30pm we are officially launching a new show entitled ‘The Past is Forever’, by the Artist Ian Taylor.
(Please see attached file for more information.)

Ian who has lived in New Zealand for many years now spent his formative years on Teesside.

He says, “ I was raised on a council estate in Dormanstown in the 50’s and 60’s. They were halcyon days for me. Football in the streets, a working class community of steel and I.C,I. Workers. A secure environment in which to grow”

The work of Ian Taylor speaks eloquently of a life spent collecting impressions from multiple visual and cultural sources.

Like a fine tuning of divergent experiences, there exists in his work a stunning visual synergy between past and present.

Ian says, “ My work tries to reflect a genuine love of the area I grew up in and all the cultural influences that have affected me in some way. The Beatles, my beloved Boro, John Ford westerns, Dylan, Miles Davis, Bartok, Beckmann and Play for Today. It is a very personal journey that sees the past as forever. 

Many of the works seem almost at a hazy pictorial point, a cross roads between the solidity of the past and the expression of a nostalgia that informs the present .There is a mythology at work here, which although personal is far from private or esoteric, it welcomes the viewer and engages with recognisable and familiar themes and sources in a playful and conversational way.

This will actually be Ian’s first exhibition on Teesside and includes paintings and drawings spanning his career. 

Ian has never lost his love for the North East, for its places and it’s people, and with this exhibition at pythongallery he is certainly making a triumphant return.

Refreshments will be available from our brilliant partners TP Coffee house, so come along to meet Ian and help us celebrate what promises to be an engaging, uplifting and entertaining exhibition.
Best wishes, Peter Heselton

Kevin Weaver War and Peace Private View

Kevin Weaver War and Peace Private View

Hello,

We would like to invite you to the next amazing exhibition at pythongallery.
On Saturday 11th June, from 1-3pm we are officially launching a new show entitled War and Peace, by the Artist Kevin Weaver.
Kevin is an astonishing artist based in Cumbria who works in painting and other media to produce works that deal with quite profound subject matter.  There are particularly two strands that run through this show, one dealing with Kevin’s traumatic time spent as a war reporter for such papers as the Independent, the Guardian and The New Statesman and the other thread concentrates on his love of Landscape and the beauty and power of Nature.
The show is a very powerful dialogue between these two aspects of the world and is handled with a humanistic and thoughtful approach.
It really is a ‘must see’ exhibition.
Refreshments will be available from our brilliant partners TP Coffee house, so come along for what promises to be an engaging and thought provoking afternoon.
We are also really pleased to be launching another show in our Upstairs space by Local Artist Shaun Eliott, featuring his vibrant, urban and idiosyncratic work on found and recycled material.
All in all it’s going to be a great day so please come along and help us celebrate the work of these artists.
Best wishes, Peter Heselton
