Holy Name Galleries Club

From Catherine Hearne 

Ushaw College is truly one of the hidden jewels in Durham’s crown and is steeped in history dating back to its foundation in Douai, France in 1568. As part of our 90th celebrations we have arranged a “behind the scenes” tour of the former seminary on Saturday 26 January with a coach door to door. We’ll have tea and cake in the refectory afterwards. We’ll leave Holy Name at 12:30pm and return about 5pm. The cost per person is £18.50 (16 places). If you wish to join the tour, email me at catherinehearne@btinternet.com.

Turner Prize-winner (2017) Lubaina Himid presented a solo exhibition at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art this summer. A Holy Name guided tour of “Our Kisses are Petals” took place on Friday 7 September. Afterwards we had the added pleasure of meeting the artist in the cafeteria and we took advantage of the occasion to discuss the exhibition with her.
