What's On at Northart in December

POCKET EDITION
SMALL WORKS FOR LARGE WALLS
27 November to 21 December
Opening event 5pm Sunday 26 November
Cash and Carry

Northart draws a very successful year to an end with one of its most popular annual shows. Thirty members – ranging from well-established professional painters to emerging artists – were each given 10 pieces of good quality postcard-sized card and asked to create a series of works. The result is an eclectic mix of landscapes, portraits, figurative works, studies from nature, abstract works and still lifes, as well as some works that defy categorisation. All the pieces are exhibited unframed and will be sold on a cash and carry and very affordable basis, with framing arranged at a small additional cost. Sold works are replaced with copies so that each series, and the show, remains intact over the whole period. You can see the full list of participating artists here. 

ART & CRAFT
THE CHRISTMAS SHOW
4 to 21 December
Opening event 5pm Sunday 3 December
 
The Christmas Show provides the perfect opportunity to hunt out a unique gift for an art lover. A diverse selection of painting, photography, printmaking, ceramics, glass, textile art, and even ‘comfy designer wear’ will be on show and available for purchase.

GALLERY TIME FOR KIDS
CHRISTMAS CRACKER SPECIAL
Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November
11am to 1pm
 
Children are invited to get into the spirit of the season by exploring the gallery and then having fun making their own personalised and creative Christmas crackers to give as a special present to a family member or friend. Suitable for 5- to 10-year olds, these sessions don’t require booking, but are very popular, so it’s best to arrive early to secure a place. Entry by gold coin donation.
