Darlington through the eyes of artists

5th – 30th January 2019

Darlington through the eyes of artists is on display until Wednesday 30 January 2019. A selection of oils, watercolours and sketches from the local studies collection, all featuring views of the town that have inspired artists over the years. Interesting not only for their artistic merit but also for what we can learn from them about Darlington in times gone by.

As Robert Scarr, writing in the Darlington and Stockton Times, 7th October 1967 said:

“Darlington has provided many fine artists in times past, and their works, besides being a constant source of pleasure to connoisseurs are also of great help to local historians, depicting as they do, many aspects of the town’s architecture and pastoral charm in times past”.
