Middlesbrough Gallery Nominated for Top Regional Art Award

Middlesbrough Gallery Nominated for Top Regional Art Award

March 2010 - A key creative development in Middlesbrough has been shortlisted in the prestigious Arts and Business North Awards for the second year running.

The pythongallery, which is owned by leading developer Python Properties and run in partnership with Middlesbrough Council, has once again been nominated for The Arts and Business Community Award.

Opened in July 2007 and based in a key regeneration area of Middlesbrough, the gallery was shortlisted for the support it has given to local, regional and international artists.

Martin Johnson, Partner at Python Properties, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive a nomination in the Arts and Business Awards for the second year running.

“We chose to launch the pythongallery at Royal Middlehaven House in order to create a place where artists – whether amateur or professional – could showcase their work to the people of Middlesbrough, while helping to draw people to the town from the wider region".

“Over previous years we have seen a number of significant regeneration projects being completed across Middlesbrough and ventures like the pythongallery are essential in not only helping to attract people and businesses to the town but getting them to stay here as well.”

Juliet Farrar, Head of Cultural Services at Middlesbrough Council, added: “As part of the Cultural Strategy for the town, we need places where people can experience art and where the talent of local artists can have a home and be experienced by a wide audience. The pythongallery is a fantastic example of this and of partnership working between the private sector, arts community and the local authority.”

As well as supporting local artists the pythongallery also works alongside Teesside University to exhibit artworks completed by its staff and art students. Following the outstanding success of the pythongallery in Middlesbrough, Python Properties has launched its initial plans to open a second gallery in its Warrington property, Bank Quay House.

The Arts & Business North Awards celebrate the best examples of partnerships between culture and commerce throughout the North of England. For the first time, the 2010 Awards were open to organisations throughout the whole of the North including Yorkshire and the Humber, the North East and North West.

Python Properties offers smart and stylish commercial properties with a professional, first class service from a full-time centrally located office in Middlesbrough.
