BEYOND Open Weekend

  • Allenheads Contemporary Arts, Old School House, Allenheads, Northumberland, NE47 9HR (map)

All welcome at ACA to preview works in progress from the BEYOND programme. The BEYOND Open Weekend is part of ACA's ambitious BEYOND programme, exploring the word 'beyond' as a starting point for discussion, research and creation of new work.

Cloud Chamber - Susan Eyre

Join artist Susan Eyre and witness the beautiful trails made by cosmic particles that are constantly passing through us and our world unseen.  

Astronomical Vision Training Device - Annie Carpenter

Always wanted to improve your stargazing? Come along and explore the Astronomical Vision Training Device! Part sculpture, part amateur contraption, the device invites visitors to enhance their experience of the night sky by improving their night vision.

SPACEWARP - Tod Hanson

Our new large scale mural made by artist Tod Hanson and A-level students from Queen Elizabeth High School, Hexham. The collaborative mural is influenced by the gravity of stars and planets, and their trajectories. 

EXOPLANET - Zoe Benbow

Artist Zoe Benbow has been making homemade drawingbots with local children, and together they have created a whole new imaginary planet. Come down and see the results!

A Midsummer Night's Drone 2018

Noisemakers and musicians from all over will gather at Allenheads for a midsummer night's musical ritual, and you are welcome to join them. Either come along in person, or submit an instrument or code - help the noisemakers drone from sunset through to sunrise!
