East Durham Artist Network celebrates its 20th year next year and they run their own small gallery in Seaham on a non profit basis. They have a wide range of skills that cover most media and produce diverse and intriguing artworks.
They have a full programme of exhibitions at their gallery on Church Street, changing their displays every 4-5 weeks, which enables them to showcase new work of their members throughout the year. However, each member can only exhibit once in a year, so they welcome this great opportunity of an external exhibition that creates a new platform to showcase their work.
Whether professional or amateur as an artist, they insist on a high standard of presentation – and that along with the diversity of the works, will surely be an exciting and eclectic display.
Exhibition ends 12/01/2024

Celine’s journey began with flowers and nature, including macro photography and focus stacking, seeing the minuscule detail and miracle of each single flower. This in turn, because of the beauty of nature, drew her deeper and led her to the spiritual beauty of churches and cathedrals.
The next part of Celine’s journey led her to beauty of a different kind, hidden in the slums and streets of Kolkata, Celine took some fascinating photographs, capturing moments of time within the community of Kolkata, some of which form part of this exhibition.
And then Lockdown arrived… isolated and at home, Celine took part in a book project involving members of the RPS Contemporary North group about what 2020 meant to her.
Once lockdown had lifted, Celine started to venture out and went onto publishing two books – ‘Restless Waters’, which are poems/prayers and reflections of her journey over the past 20 years and also – ‘Eyes of the Heart’, a photobook of the images she took during her time in Kolkata.
Celine had now entered a new phase of her photographic journey interpreting things creatively using Photoshop and intentional camera movement, returning once again to nature, countryside and seaside.
We do hope you can make it to the opening, which offers a great opportunity to meet Celine over drinks & nibbles and ask any questions you may have about the work on display.
‘A Family Affair’ by artists –
Jo Pickering, Russell Wellard,
Katy Gofton and Lynn Morse
Thursday 2nd March 2023

This family group of artists regularly get together to paint and often book a venue to meet up and enjoy a whole day of painting together. Their individual styles and techniques are brought together in this intriguing family exhibition.
Jo has taught art for over 30 years and teaches regular adult classes in the Teesside and Darlington area. Jo’s mum Lynn has also painted for years and teaches popular monthly landscape painting workshops in the Teesside area. Jo’s sister Katy has always been a crafter, but started painting in the last few years. Katy also specialises in colour pencils and produces highly realistic portraits. Jo’s uncle Russell began painting a few years ago and has recently started to specialise in landscape painting, taking inspiration from landscape images from his many fishing trips.
Happy New Year
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all the very best for 2023.
We would like to invite you to attend the first exhibition of 2023 at The Heritage Gallery launching with a private view on:
Thursday 19th January 2023
Between 5pm and 7pm
The opening night offers a great opportunity to meet Kate over drinks & nibbles and ask any questions you may have about the work on display.
“When we are outside, whatever the weather and season, it’s the sky that frames our view, reflecting our thoughts and emotions back onto us.
The North East landscape with its sometimes shocking contradictions and diverse terrain, have a direct effect on the people within it, whether good, bad or beautiful, it is endlessly compelling and distinct.
Photographic images at their very best seem to suspend moments in time, hovering in a separate dimension – this place, that thought, then.
My hope is that these images resonate and connect with you, the viewer.”
Kate’s superb eye for composition and the ability to capture an atmosphere within her photography is inspiring. This exhibition will bring an abundance of ambience within the images and we do hope you can make it to the opening to see them.
