ArtsBank is delighted to announce that it now has a second home: the NeST Gallery at Barnard Castle.
Housed in a converted garage, the gallery wil share the open space with the cafe, studio space and digital hub.
Just like ArtsBank in Saltburn, NeST is a vibrant dynamic space which is always changing.
Artsbank main aim to give a massive boost to the work of creative people across the north east and beyond, therefore NeST is an ideal venue of choice for the art enthusiasts in the area.
Based at Teeside ArtsBank showcase more than eighty visual artists, with many, many more adding to the numbers. They are the cream of an enormous and rich crop of northern talent: painters, photographers, sculptors and craftspeople, from all generations, along with film makers, and artists who work with digital media. Some are renowned. Some are neglected. Some are unknown. But all deserve the widest exposure. ArtsBank will make that exposure possible, by promoting the work of its artists on an unprecedented scale.
NeST now houses Artsbanks as a commercial gallery and shop with affordable prints (manufactured in-house to the highest standards), original art, all hand crafted in the north east, to cards and jewellery.
Central aims for ArtsBank are to involve people from all backgrounds in the cultural life of the region, and to raise the cultural profile of an often-neglected area. ArtsBank hopes to inspire new creative work, across the media, and especially from the young. Outreach activities will strengthen ArtsBank's educational and community links. Classes and workshops will be run, developing ArtsBank’s association with schools, colleges, community groups and national organisations.
Come along to Barnard Castle and see this unique, friendly gallery for yourself.
