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.
