Event Details

Wednesday 6th March – Sunday 28th April

Our next exhibition in the ‘Inside Out Gallery’ at the Heritage Centre is by local artist Katherine Rodger.

These paintings, primarily of the northern landscape, began as demonstrations for Katherine’s weekly painting classes at the Land of Oak & Iron Heritage Centre. They have been developed into finished artworks at Katherine’s studio in Rowlands Gill.

Katherine’s work is inspired by the birdlife and landscape of her home in North East England. Working mainly with acrylic paints, she specialises in colourful paintings of British wild birds and of birdsong.

She uses a wide range of techniques, some with Surrealist origins and others which Katherine has developed through her own exploration of acrylic medium.

Katherine previously worked as an Artist/Designer, Secondary School Art Teacher, Artist-in-Residence and Painting Tutor, both in the UK and in New Zealand, and currently runs regular painting workshops at various venues including the Land of Oak & Iron Heritage Centre. Katherine firmly believes in the benefits of painting as a route to mindfulness and this is a key focus of her own practice and of her teaching.

Katherine’s original paintings and fine art giclee prints have been exhibited at a range of galleries including Haslam’s of Hallgate in Hexham, the North East Art Collective in Newcastle, Art Unlimited Gallery in Dorset, and The Bowlees Centre, Teesdale. Katherine’s work is also featured in the book ‘A History of Birds in the Derwent Valley’ by local Ornithologist Michael Turner.

The exhibition is visible from our Courtyard to the rear of the Heritage Centre.  Please ask a member of our team if interested in purchasing any artworks from the exhibition.
