Art Lending Library at Crown Street Gallery, Darlington
3 May 2014 - 5 June 2014
Art Lending Library. A project by Market Gallery and Walker & Bromwich.
The Art Lending Library brings together over 50 works by a diverse range of artists working across the broad spectrum of formats available within contemporary visual arts practice. The project has been made possible through the generosity of participating artists in gifting their works into the care of the library, to be made available to loan for the duration of the exhibition.
Join them in celebrating the opening of the exhibition with a ceremonial procession through Darlington town centre, accompanied by the Cockerton Prize Silver Band. The parade will be followed by a reception from 1pm until 3pm at Crown Street Gallery, where you will be able to join the Art Lending Library and borrow works to enjoy in your home, work place or community centre. The Parade begins at the Life Pulse sculpture on Blackwellgate, 12 noon on Saturday 3 May.
The exhibition runs at Crown Street Gallery, Darlington, from Saturday 3 May – Thursday 5 June 2014. For further details, and to see the artworks, visit www.artlendinglibrary.org.uk
