Christina's exhibition at Dennis Kilgallon's 'The Gallery In The Hills' is going well. Lots of people came to the preview and Christina sold some of her latest paintings and prints. The exhibition runs from 1st September to the 28th October. Dennis has also used one of Christina's images on the side of his own van, so 'Listening To Curlews' is travelling around the countryside every day as a sort of mobile gallery.

Gallery Poster

Most of the new work on display is what Christina painted from her new studio here in Allendale, with its sweeping panorama. Some was done from London on a brief visit there. The pressure of working towards an exhibition means that Christina has been unable to visit friends and family as much as she would like. However, it means a lot more paintings for the rest of us to enjoy at this new exhibition and some others that are in the Robinson Gay Gallery.

Actually, it it double good news because our daughter Cat Moore is also exhibiting some of her linocuts and other prints in the same gallery space. See some of her work on her website or shop

Christina's paintings are also on view at the Robinson-Gay Gallery in Hexham. The gallery exhibits the work of a number of top artists, so please visit, or check out their website.

The Dennis Kilgallon Gallery is in the hills between Bardon Mill and Whitfield. More details about the gallery on their website. The gallery has its own outdoor sculpture and views of the hills around it. It can be found at NE47 8JP on your SATNAV. Please note that the gallery is open weekends from 11.00 - 5.00. You can arrange for it to open other times by calling 07496 754601. How about that; your very own private view?

Christina writes: 'I am recovering from the effort involved in painting and preparing work for Dennis's gallery. There you can see all of the things that have inspired me from my new studio.

A Fine Evening

In this exhibition you will find a few 'wild cards' too, painted whilst house sitting for family. Homage to Rousseau for example has a cat sitting in the undergrowth, staring at birds in a tree. See if you can spot the cat. Pollarded Planes and It's a New Day are some of my city paintings.'

There will be no overseas train odyssey again this year, partly due to us spending every pound and minute on our new home and workspaces So, no addition to our Travel Blog. Feel free to ignore it, but it has been the best way to recall the details of our recent journeys.
