PAINTINGS capturing the life and landscape of Northumberland will be on display in a popular Hexham venue this weekend.

Corbridge Art Club has teamed up with Roger Davy, the manager of Hexham’s Beaumont Hotel, for an exhibition called ‘Northumberland Art at the Beaumont’.

On Saturday and Sunday, in the hotel’s Sele view room, the exhibition will feature paintings by members of the club, which is one of the oldest-established art organisations in the area.

The paintings will capture a variety of aspects of Northumberland life.

The exhibition is a new initiative for the club and will feature small paintings which will be for sale.

Chairwoman of the club, Irene Parker, said: “We are delighted to be co-operating with the hotel in this new venture and we hope that it will add to the enjoyment of their guests as well as pleasing the visiting public.”
