While many art lovers will be used to visiting Middlesbrough’s independent gallery The Auxiliary for exhibitions, the space is also a more permanent home to several artists who house their studios in the warehouse space. This month they’re celebrating the work of their studio holders by inviting them to get involved in the curatorial aspects of the gallery. The Studio Group Show will take place from Thursday 9th-Saturday 11th December, and will provide an insight into the wonderful work which goes on in the space behind closed doors.

Artists taking part include painter and current director of Cultivate Tees Valley, Mark Mullis; sculptor Loucey Bain, whose recent exhibition was a large scale solo show at The Auxiliary; highly regarded painter Gordon Dalton; artist and performer John James Perangie, who showcases sculpture, painting, installation and fashion in their work; Arts Lab Teesside founder Lisa Lovebucket; queer collective We The Queers will be exhibiting their individual disciplines – text/performance-based artist Dyad’s pieces often have a strong political stance, while Andy Newcombe’s work centres around noise/performance; award-winning sculptor Cameron Lings; ceramicist Chris Suttie, who’s currently working on a year-long project which focuses on art, health and well-being; photography collective WAX; Auxiliary co-founder and sound artist Liam Slevin, and many others.

In addition to the main gallery exhibition, there will also be a small art shop where attendees can buy prints and merchandise – perfect for that unique Christmas gift!
