Blyth Festival Gallery showcases local art
When James Roy founded the Blyth Festival in 1975, he wanted the Festival to be more than just a theatre so by the second season, an art display was set up in the basement/lobby of Blyth Memorial Hall.
As the Festival grew, so did the art gallery and when an addition was added to Memorial Hall in 1990, the Bainton Gallery became a dedicated space for art exhibits. The art adds to the pleasure of those attending the theatre. The plays bring a larger audience for the artists, many of them local.
The gallery was part of the renovations to Blyth Memorial Hall over the winter and spring.
You can find out more about the 2017 season on our art gallery page or in the art listings in our listings.
