£100,000 boost for Kielder art

MORE new super-sized artworks are on their way to Britain’s biggest open air art gallery – Kielder Water and Forest Park.

Kielder art

Arts Council England has awarded the Kielder Art and Architecture programme a grant of £100,000 to take Kielder in an exciting new artistic direction, according to curator Peter Sharpe.
The cash will be used not only to create another four art works to stand alongside the existing 20 pieces, but also to allow some of the 330,000 visitors who come to Kielder each year to be involved in the creation of new works.
Starting next month, the new programme "Seeing the Woods from the Trees" will offer the public a range of opportunities to get involved with visual art and artists, including a series of workshops and master classes.
