ALATI Newsletter 3
Landscapes of Alston Moor exhibition continues at Nenthead’s Hive until Sunday, 2 August
Our first exhibition, #Landscapes of #Alston Moor, has been well received despite lockdown challenges. It only runs for two more weeks, with the #exhibition and café open Thursday to Sunday inclusive 10-3pm.
The exhibition is part of the Alston Landscape Art Town Initiative, a new scheme to bring visitors to the area and recognition for its fine landscapes and its strong tradition of #landscapeart and #photography.
Release into the Landscape Exhibition and Competition
To mark the lifting of the lockdown, we are planning series of #tours and #talks in late summer with an exhibition of people’s work at Christmas. Our five artists and landscape photographers will lead participating groups to specific locations over the summer, although people are free to choose their own subjects. More details will follow.
We have drawn up a wide-ranging list of events for later in the summer once lockdown lifts. More details to come.
Your Board of Trustees would like to thank everyone who has helped so far including Alston Moor Partnership’s Community Fund.
As we are a small group of eight volunteers and the workload is growing, we would like to invite anyone interested in joining the Board of Trustees to consider the following roles: membership secretary, fundraising officer and events’ organiser. Please get in touch below.
