Artist Alan Morley at Gallery TS1

A special Middlesbrough gallery is laying on window displays showcasing the work of local artists.

Gallery TS1 in Corporation Road specialises in the talent of artists and craftspeople from the Teesside area.

It offers local people the chance to buy top quality art from up-and-coming talent and established artists at a fraction of the costs of big city galleries.

Gallery TS1 stages year round exhibitions of artists’ work, showcasing high quality affordable art and crafts, from artworks on canvas, photography and textiles to fashion, jewellery and ceramics.

The current ‘Artist in the Window’ is Cleveland Art Society Exhibition Secretary Alan Morley who is showing a mixture of landscapes and portraits in oils, alongside a collection of his studio equipment.

Artists are also chosen regularly to showcase their work in the Gallery Shop.

Alan said: “There are a great many talented artists and craftspeople in the area and it’s fantastic that they have somewhere to showcase their creativity.

“That’s why Gallery TS1 is so important, both for the artists who show and sell their work and for the people of Middlesbrough.

“People love the mix of stuff on display, from the arts and crafts which make ideal presents to fantastic works of art which are snapped up by collectors.

“It’s great that pieces of art produced in Middlesbrough are finding their way all over Britain and are even being sent across the world.”

The Gallery TS1 project began as an initiative to help young people gain invaluable hands-on work experience, with the possibility of progressing into further education, training or employment.

Gallery TS1 went on to become an artist-led enterprise, offering a host of training opportunities to help emerging artists starting out in business.
