Luminosity, the 2017 craft tour celebrates LIGHT with an illuminating exhibition of contemporary works by UK and International artists including glass, sculptural textiles, film, electronics, jewellery and neon. Our international artists include Evagelia Hagikalfa from Greece and Statira Jazayeri, a Swedish artist with Iranian roots. Our exhibition in Shap, coincides with C-Art the Cumbria Contemporary Art Festival and this year we are extending Lumiere the Durham Light Festival into the Dale through our venue at St. Thomas’ Church Hall, Stanhope, enabling our rural communities to connect with and participate in the excitement of the event.
