A new exhibition at The Python Gallery in Middlesbrough is showcasing portraits of local arts professionals.

Titled 'The United Artists of Teesside', the exhibition is the first one of it's kind by Kev Howard.

The show features photographs of Vin Garbutt, Bob Beagrie and Dominic Nelson Ashley to name a few.

"I wanted to create a project that highlights the diverse range of creative people living and working across Teesside" says Kev.


A professional photographer for over 20 years, Kev has worked in most aspects of photography, including studio portraits, still life, community documentation, landscape, industrial, educational projects and live performance.

The show, Kev's first on this scale, features 17 large photographic portraits of local arts professionals, drawn from across the region.

"There is a large range of amazing artistic talent around the area and this exhibition is an opportunity for me to spotlight some of the professionals from across the creative spectrum". Says Kev.

The exhibition runs until 15 October and is open Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5pm.
