NEAC Exhibition, Bondgate Gallery, Alnwick
13th May to 29th June 2020  

Following our previous well-received exhibitions of 20 x 20cm pictures, the newly refurbished Bondgate Gallery, Alnwick, at the Playhouse Theatre, has invited us to hold another this year. The exhibition will run from May 13 to June 29. Framed paintings will be for sale at a fixed price of £50 each. 

In-House new permanent exhibition "Nick's Wall"

Our club room exhibition space is now in use, initially featuring a selection of vibrant and colourful paintings by Nick Broome. We are grateful to Nick’s widow Susannah for the loan of this work.

It was Nick who championed the idea that the club should have its own space for members to display their work. It is for that reason we call the space ‘Nick’s Wall’, in his memory.

Nick’s paintings will be displayed until the end of 2019, thereafter the space will be opened up to any club member (or group of members) wishing to use it. The wall will be bookable for one month periods.
