NEW: Today best known for his landscape painting, artist Paul Dillon is showing work from a career that covers more than 40 years and includes painting and graphic design from a diverse portfolio of subjects from science fiction and fantasy, steam engines, wildlife, punk album covers and event posters. In parallel with his work as an artist, Paul ran Darlington Media Workshop and is showing a selection of black and white photographs taken in and around Darlington Arts Centre in the 1980s and 90s.
This exhibition which had a preview at the Bridge earlier this year has had more examples of Paul's work added and a new set of limited edition prints added.
It will be opened at 5.30pm on Friday 10th November 10th the Art Gallery in Crown Street Darlington, all welcome to attend.
