ARTISTS have joined forces with a Wearside church to launch a new exhibition.

The Assign group will be displaying work at Sunderland Minster’s cafe in the coming months.

Member Tony Redman said: “The latest project came about after the very successful Assign ‘Yes Minster’ exhibition in the Minster in September and October this year.

“The cafe owner approached member Alex Surtees with the proposition that we put some work into the cafe area.

“Following some discussions, we installed a show from a selection of members’ work and later the group proposed the ‘one-person, one-month’ format.”

Artists pencilled in for next year include Decia Morris, Angela Rogerson, Bruce Burn, Vanessa Carr, Pat Thirtle and Laura Conlon.
