Quick, before Paper Folk Fold; Other Exhibitions in the Tees Valley:


Byline: Karen McLauchlan

TIME is running out to see the fascinating collection of "paper people" on show at Hartlepool Art Gallery.

The exhibition of life-size figures created by artist PHILIP COX comes to an end tomorrow. Each of the remarkable sculptures has been made by Philip from corrugated cardboard, paper pulp and coloured paper during the course of his 25 years as a professional artist.

Despite having received no formal training as an artist, Philip was a firm believer in "having a go" and an exhibition of his work in Nottingham in 1986 launched his career as a professional sculptor.

Since then several major solo exhibitions of his work have been held in the UK and he has been commissioned by international paper manufacturers to create artwork using their materials. He has also produced window displays for London department store Harvey Nichols and his largest commission to date has been the creation of 60 figures for the Nottingham-based visitor attraction The Tales Of Robin Hood.

The gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays 10am-5pm and entry is free. Details on 01429 869706.

The exhibition can be viewed daily from 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday. Paintings will be available for sale. Details on 01748 825252.
