Art Exhibition to Benefit British Wildlife

Posted on November 8th 2021 by Whats on Northeast

Newton Village Hall in Newton, Stocksfield, will host an exhibition of art by Ashley Boon and Ian Greensitt on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th November. The venue will be open from 10.30am to 5pm on Saturday 27th, and from 10.30am to 3.30pm on Sunday 28th. The exhibition will be free but there will be a special paid preview on the evening of Friday 26th November from 6 to 8.30pm.


Tickets for the preview will be £10 each and will include drinks and a raffle. Proceeds from the evening will be split between the GWCT, Brain Tumour Research and The High Sheriff Awards.


Ashley Boon has been exhibiting since 1990. He says, “I developed an abiding interest in natural history at an early age and was fascinated by everything from pond life and reptiles to birds, which became my great love.” Now based in Geltsdale in rural Cumbria, he captures that childhood fascination through his work.


Sculptor Ian Greensitt works in bronze using the lost wax process to create stunning limited editions of his chosen subjects, with each piece having its unique colouration. He works in a studio in Northumberland, close to the rivers and moorlands where he is able to study his subjects in great detail.


The exhibition is kindly sponsored by Cheviot Insured, Thrift Energy and Sanderson Weatherall.
