Hartlepool Art Club’s Annual exhibition is held at the Hartlepool Art Gallery from mid-November to mid-January each year.
The work displayed reflects the imagination and skills that have established our reputation as a leading Art Society in the north.
This unique venue affords a magnificent setting for the traditional, contemporary and abstract works that feature in a range of techniques and subject matter.
74th Annual Exhibition – scheduled for 13th November 2021 – 15th January 2022 – We hope to confirm this in time to come.

The Golden Lion, Dunston Road, Hartlepool
The art work on the walls of this lovely local pub is that of our very own club members. Every eight weeks we usually have a “change-over” so a fresh look will be on the walls. Due to covid-19 restrictions in the hospitality sector our last change over was 7th October (2020), with the next change due 2nd December 2020. This could not take place due to Government advice. We will keep you updated with future change over plans.
***Although the pub will be open for business indoors probably from mid-May (2021), there will be restrictions as to numbers and households able to mix. On that basis, it is likely that our first changeover will be on Wednesday 5th August 2021.
