Last chance to see exhibitions

PEOPLE have until Sunday to see three art exhibitions in Durham.

Works by Anthony Clark, Theodore Major and Kate Wilson are currently on display at the DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery in Durham.

The showcase of paintings, drawings, etchings and painted engravings by established County Durham-artist Clark also includes a number of new works made over the past five years.

Clark, who lives in Teesdale, attended the Royal College of Art in London, Prior to his time in London, he studied at Sunderland College of Art, where he eventually went on to teach.

He spent a number of years as a lecturer in Sunderland while at the same time showing his works around the world.

His work is held in many public collections, both in Britain and abroad, and in the private collections of US president Jimmy carter, Cardinal Hume and LS Lowry.

The new works result from a series of journeys Clark made to Russia, Italy, Crete and Spain following in the footsteps of the artistic greats.

Work by Major are on loan from Durham University, while Wilson’s pieces make up a display entitled Last Full Measure of Devotion, an installation which uses ceramic cups to quantify the loss of life of British servicemen and women in Afghanistan.
