Tenemos Art Exhibition at Bishop Auckland until Sunday 15 April

Opening Times: 10am-12noon Mondays-Fridays
or by appointment with John Purdy

High-quality prints of Rick Stott's work are available to buy at the exhibition.

The paintings have arrived! We are excited to remind you that the TEMENOS exhibition is now on. The exhibition comes to Bishop Auckland Methodist Church on behalf of the Darlington Methodist District and runs from Sun 25th March to Sun 15th April 2018.

The launch evening was on Friday 23 March at 7pm. Many people gathered to view the art and enjoy the generous hospitality of Bishop Auckland Methodist Church. Sadly the artist Ric Stott, Methodist Minister based in Sheffield, was not able to be present. However, Chair of District, Rev Ruth Gee stood in for Rick giving information to inspire us all with his vision for the work.

We encourage you to come along and allow yourself to be drawn a little out of your comfort zone. You are welcome to invite others to come with you. If any individual or group is interested in viewing the exhibition, during the exhibition dates it is open Mon-Fri 10am-12 noon, or contact John Purdy to make an appointment.

The TEMENOS series of ten paintings and poems explores the idea of threshold space — the place where a new thing can come into being. Each painting overlays image, colour and gesture and the poems weave words that open up spaces and invite each viewer to bring our personal stories and experiences as we interact with the painting. Temenos is a collaboration between Sheffield-based artist Ric Stott and Plymouth-based poet Ian Adams.
