Trash ‘n’ Treasure at Festival of Thrift 2014



Following  our involvement in the visual arts at Festival of Thrift last year at Lingfield Point, Darlington, we are proud to announce that we’ll be bringing our Trash ‘n’ Treasure Art Bazaar event to this year’s festival. We ran the first Trash ‘n’ Treasure event at The Bridge, Darlington following Festival of Thrift last year, and we have been supported by the festival to include it in this years line up of events.

Calling all artists!

Clear out your unused art materials, bits of kit you no longer use, art books and publications. For only £10 you can apply to take a stall with us at Trash ‘n’ Treasure as part of this year’s festival.

These stalls are for part used or second hand items only, not for commercial selling and items must in some way have a creative application.

For further information and to request a stall please email with TnT stalls in the subject header.

The Gallery of Forgotten Art auction will be take place daily at 3.45pm with guest auctioneers Tea Ladies, Jean & Morag. The gallery will show all selected works within the main Trash ‘n’ Treasure event space and then each piece will be auctioned at the end of each day in a larger outdoor area. The aim behind this gallery and auction is to get old and/or forgotten artworks out from under beds, attics and corners of artist’s studio and find loving homes for them.

Do you have a piece of artwork which you no longer want hanging around (no pun intended!)? Have you been storing a painting or print under the bed or at the back of the wardrobe and it’s sat there collecting dust?

If the answer is yes then submit your art to our Gallery of Forgotten Artwork where we aim to bring these unwanted pieces of art out into the light and find them a new loving home.

All artworks will be considered but must be no bigger than 1m square. For further information and a submission form please email info@navigatornorth with TnT gallery in the subject header.

Each day in the Trash ‘n’ Treasure event space we’ll also have artist demos at 11am, 1pm and 2pm, where visitors can find out more about DIY art techniques. Each demo will have a ‘How to’ handout for visitors to take away and try themselves.

We hope to see you there and if you want to get involved, have a stall or submit art to the gallery do get in touch.
