Looking back: Artful Ways at Tullie House


The Artful Ways exhibition is a portal into perspectives on Cumbria and on walking, on the impact of Covid and our relationships with the natural environment, and shares reflections on what it means to be here … and connected. The exhibition is multi-media and multi-storied, with film, audio pieces, textile work, painting, photography, illustration, poetry, basket making, pottery and 3D books. It’s an inspiring and eclectic collection of voices, creativity and thought provoking work. Visit Tullie House website here to plan your visit.

The exhibition includes work from the five commissioned Artful Way artists, alongside pieces that have been selected from the many contributions made during the summer of walks and events – these are all available to see on the Artful Ways online gallery. When you visit the exhibition, you’ll also be able to explore the map of walks via the interactive touch screen – but do have a browse before you visit, by walking virtually through the map here.

The exhibition is a celebration of individual and community heartfelt expression, and a starting point for conversations and new collaborations. The Tullie House setting is perfect for the work – and we’re really happy that the stunning gallery space sits alongside the New Light Art Prize. Together these are a wonderful celebration of northern art and creativity.
