Cheeseburn Open Weekend
As the Spring and Summer months are upon us, we have the Cheeseburn open weekends to look forward to. The programme changes over the course of the 5 months, so there are plenty of reasons to visit repeatedly over the year.
Gillian Dickinson North East Young Sculptor of the Year Prize 2019
For the May open weekends, visitors were invited to explore the proposals in the Stables Gallery by 10 young artists who have been shortlisted to become the 2019 Gillian Dickinson North East Young Sculptor of the Year.
Clare Townley, the 2018 winner of the Gillian Dickinson North East Young Sculptor of the Year Prize exhibited her new installation and dancer Simona Yovcheva was performing in response to her artwork.
The chapel was the site for an impressive collection of glass ships in glass bottles as part of a project by Dr Ayako Tani. "Vessels of Memory aims to document the skills and experience of glassworkers."
There were also numerous new sculptures exhibited around the grounds.
