The Coquetdale Arts Centre is located in the Library building on the High Street of the delightful traditional market town of Rothbury in Northumberland. It lies on the River Coquet and is known as the Capital of Coquetdale, the town is built of the same mellow sandstone as the rolling hills that surround it. It is situated 26 miles north, north-west from Newcastle City Centre and is a popular destination for a drive out.
Founded in 1975, the Coquetdale Arts Centre is a registered charity, operated entirely by volunteers, who staff the Gallery seven days a week from the week before Easter to mid December. The large Gallery exhibits the work of 130 local artists. There are around 250 paintings for sale at any one time with a wide range of craft; glassware, jewellery, woodwork, textiles, mosaics, all original and at affordable prices.
I am delighted that a good range of my mosaic art is now being featured at the Gallery. In fact I have 3 hanging pieces, 10 craft items and 16 cards on display and for sale.
Do call in to the Gallery if you are in the area or if it is too far north for you, then you can view and buy my my work at a more southerly location at Harris & Hoole, Twickenham or via this website.
We have now completed stage 2 of the Capital Ring. One of the smaller sections from Falconwood to Grove Park.
In conjunction with ‘Walking London‘ and ‘Transport for London’ we walked the Circle Line for Sports Relief. A fantastic 15 mile walk that passed every circle line station. How many stations do you think there are – no cheating and looking at a tube map!
