Generations: Warships into Friendships Exhibition of Works
Hartlepool Art Gallery
Saturday 12th July - Saturday 30th August
For two decades the artists have exhibited together and they can be seen as a symbol of a special relationship that has developed between the two countries. Gavin and Dieter are showing separately and collectively, both new work and past collaborations. Their new work has been inspired by the theme of ‘Reconciliation’.
The artists’ friendship began in the early 1990s when Gavin was chosen to represent County Durham in its cultural exchange scheme and staged two joint exhibitions in Germany. Their friendship and collaborations have developed from there.
This is a joint exhibition of English artist Gavin Mayhew and German artist Dieter Löchle, as part of a wider programme that is taking place in Hartlepool to commemorate the First World War.
Photo is of artwork by Gavin Mayhew, entitled 'Dancer'.
