The Stell

The Stell is our temporary exhibition space at The Sill. It features a rolling programme that will cover science, art, heritage and much more.

We have hosted exhibitions covering a wide variety of themes. From a celebration of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park to the award-winning Digital Landscapes, a celebration of how digital technology can be used to help gain a deeper understanding and enjoyment of landscape and the natural world.

Over the Summer of 2019, The Stell was home to Yours Since 1949 which explained how your 15 National Parks, 46 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) and 16 National Trails came into being. The exhibition featured specially commissioned films and animations telling the history of the Campaign for National Parks and their influence on the formation of National Parks.

In 2019, The Stell was home to Inspired By Our Land, which showcased artists from across the area who took their inspiration from the landscapes, plants and animals that symbolise the National Park. You can read more about this exhibition and the artists exhibited here.  This will be returning winter 2021.
