Let’s Create: Street Gallery

Street Gallery puts artwork in windows

This summer, houses in Dawdon showed work in their windows by artists from County Durham, the UK and worldwide to brighten up our streets.
A project run by artist Eleanor Matthews and funded through our Let’s Create Covid-19 response fund.  These amazing vox pop portraits by photographer Paul Cochrane tell the individual stories of the people and artists who transformed streets in Dawdon Seaham into an art gallery during the pandemic.

Over 25 artists took part in the project, loaning work for display in people’s windows in Dawdon.

Durham University lent work from their collection and artists created work specifically for the project, or chose it for its suitability.
