Northern Collective Exhibition

Artwork by Northern Collective Artists


The public are cordially invited to a special private view of the Northern Collective Exhibition on Sunday 14 October from 2pm to 4pm, with the opportunity to meet the artists.

This is the Northern Collective's first group exhibition. They will be exhibiting at the Circle Gallery at Theatre by the Lake, Keswick from 10 October to 11 November 2018.

Comprising 16 artists from Cumbria and beyond the Northern Collective regularly meet to observe, be inspired by and make drawings in a variety of venues, ranging from Lake District landscapes to cultural sites such as Abbot Hall Gallery and Sprint Mill, Burneside and its unique collection of local memorabilia.

The artists will showcase a rich diversity of themes and artistic processes including painting, printmaking, textiles, collage and assemblage. As well as expansive landscape forms, themes explored in the Northern Collective include plant structures, texture and surface markings, and flora and fauna found in the natural environment.

“We are delighted to have our first group exhibition, as the Northern Collective, in the Circle Gallery at the prestigious Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, a cultural gem situated by the dramatic lakeside of Derwentwater.”
