Easter fun at The Bowes Museum

Come and join in the fun, from taking part in an Easter egg hunt, to nature trails and even an Alien Beach Party there's something for everyone to enjoy!


#Untitled10 2019 Open Call

#Untitled10 2019 Open Call

The Bowes Centre is looking for contemporary crafters from across the North of England to take part in a new exhibition, #Untitled10 2019.

The Bowes Centre, which is based in The Bowes Museum, is hoping to build on the success of #Untitled10 2018, which saw works by 10 artists placed around the Museum, often beside objects or items in the collection that had inspired them.

People interested in taking part have until 29 March to apply in curatorspace.com, with an information day being held on 26 March.

 


Clock this....

27 & 28 March 10.00 - 4.00

Clock this....

Watch horologist Matthew Read as he takes one of The Bowes Museum's longcase clocks apart and carefully restores it to working order over 2 days.

He'll be joined by members of the Conservation team in the Blue Picture Gallery as they work on the mahogany neo-classical clock from the 1780's.


Goya’s Prison: The Year of Despair

23 March – 23 June 2019

Goya’s Prison: The Year of Despair

Visitors to The Bowes Museum have the chance to see an in depth exhibition focussing on a small but career defining painting created during a turning point in the life of the Spanish painter Goya, before a group of the Museum's key Spanish paintings go on loan to The Meadows Museum in Dallas in September.

The Director of The Bowes Museum, Adrian Jenkins, has curated this show, which looks specifically at the Museum's The Interior of a Prison.

This work was created after a tumultuous period in the painters life when he became severely ill and although he eventually recovered he was left profoundly deaf.

The Bowes Museum is closed!


Due to the government announcement on Thursday 17 December, that County Durham is to remain in COVID tier 3 restrictions, The Bowes Museum unfortunately will remain closed to all visitors.

As we have already been shut for a number of weeks and there is much uncertainty around possible further restrictions, we have decided to use this period to undertake some work in Café Bowes, alongside performing some much-needed structural repairs to the building, notably to the windows. January and February are usually quieter times for the Museum, often due to severe weather, so we believe that this is the best time to carry out such works with the least amount of disruption to our visitors.

We have therefore decided to remain closed for a period of four weeks following any near-future tier 2 announcement from the government, as this will allow us time to deep clean the Museum prior to reopening our doors once again. We will, of course, keep you updated as the guidelines change.

Your ongoing support during these unprecedented times is hugely appreciated and we very much look forward to welcoming you back into the building as early as possible in 2021.

Do please remember, however, that the Museum’s park and grounds remain open to visitors from 10.00 – 4.00 daily, and that we are currently hosting a woodland fairy trail, clues can be found here.

We hope to be able to offer a few COVID-safe outdoor events over the coming months, about which we shall make further announcements as soon as possible.
