Paul Dillon started work in Darlington in 1975 drawing souvenir prints for the 125th Anniversary of the Stockton and Darlington Railway, 5 years later he began teaching Science Fiction and Fantasy illustration at the newly opened Arts Centre in Vane Terrace. When it closed he was still there, running the Media Workshop and teaching landscape painting. He moved to the Bridge Centre for Visual Arts on Yarm Road in 2012.
Paul is celebrating his 65th birthday at the Bridge, with a joint celebration and two new exhibitions. The Bridge is celebrating achieving charitable status and independence from the council which ensures its future.
‘Another side of Paul Dillon’ has work from his 40 years of painting and design work in and around Darlington.
‘Blinded by the Light’ has portrait photographs taken in the early 1980’s by Paul of people who used or worked in the Arts Centre.
Paul is taking a break from teaching but is not retiring, he will be back in September running his popular landscape courses at The Bridge Centre for Visual Arts, and he is planning future exhibitions including something special for the 200th anniversary of the Stockton and Darlington Railway.
