WORK by some of the region’s most promising artists has gone on display in a former council office.

The Temporary Worlds exhibition includes pieces by eight North-East artists and opened at 17 Claypath – Contemporary Art Space, a former council office in Durham City, tonight (Friday, November 23).

The artists were challenged to create pieces as a response to the natural world.

Project manager Carlo Viglianisi said: “It’s great to see young, exciting artists from the region choose to exhibit in Durham.

“This is exactly what the city needs in terms of developing a more rounded cultural output.”

The artists involved are: Lianne Bell, Katy Cole, Claudia Espana, David Lowther, Rachel Magdeburg, Lesley-anne Rose, Rebecca Travis and Nicola Warwick.

The exhibition is open daily except Sundays and Mondays until Saturday, December 1, from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free.
