Conversations in Painting is an artist led group which aims to open up a conversation between artists and the public around contemporary painting practice. The group serves as a hub and network for supporting Tees Valley based painting practitioners that also has a national/international remit. The project seeks to highlight the strength of the painting community evolving from Tees Valley and establish the area as a place that supports painting practice. Conversations in Painting contributes to the field of contemporary painting through exhibitions, talks, workshops and studio visits.



Conversations in Painting: Fiesta MK2 is a multi-venue celebration of painting that connects artists from Tees Valley with a broader UK and international network, whilst celebrating why painting still continues to be fascinating and engaging in a historical and contemporary context.
