Track Across Time Exhiibition

Track Across Time is an exhibition which runs to March 2014 at Darlington Railway Museum, as part of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the opening of the NER's Darlington North Road Works.

Tanfield art critic Matthew Pickering has sent these preview snaps:

The artwork is displayed around the museum, so visitors need to find items, then may feel an urge to underline them in the catalogue

Railways have provided subjects for many artists - see The Guild of Railway Artists

Calling local artists!   See the online invitation for bids (deadline 8 Nov) for artwork for the Tanfield Railway's Iron 175 event in 2014 at  http://www.cultureworks.info/durham-creatives/articles/47
