Regeneration by Martin Kinnear is open

With the use of only one arm and one leg and an extraordinary vision, the international award-winning northern artist, Martin Kinnear, has dedicated the last two years to creating large, incisive and poetical paintings about the COVID pandemic and the transformative powers of change.

They make up his major solo exhibition, called Regeneration, at The Bowes Museum.

Regeneration is about what happens when our plans were cancelled, our futures placed in doubt, and our world stopped.

It is a show about a year which changed all our lives, a show about doubt and loss, but also beauty, hope and the life-affirming power of change.

The exhibition also features the works of the winners of the Regeneration poetry and artwork competitions.
