VARC Exhibition Weekend 2018 took place 30th June/1st July in and around the Artist’s Studio and outbuildings at Highgreen, Tarset, Hexham, Northumberland, NE48 1RP.
It was an event hosted by VARC and Highgreen Arts in partnership. The weather was glorious and artists and visitors all contributed to the occasion. Claudia Sacher, Karen Melvin and Grace Warde-Aldam transformed cottage No. 3 Highgreen inspired by the atmosphere and imagined lives lived in this house empty for over a decade. Joo-Hee Yang presented work completed during her ten-month VARC residency period of reflection and Khosro Adibi was on site to show visitors his sculptures. Megan Randall helped visitors complete prints from natural found materials to create a big hanging piece in the barn and Northern Wilds made delicious flatbreads in our outdoor oven and toppings to feed us all.
The Weekend was part of Great Northumberland – 56 days of free arts, culture and heritage events in Northumberland. For more details please visit https://www.greatnorthumberland.co.uk/
