There are five display boards with approximately 11 metres of hanging space in total by length. Exhibitions by artists, photographers, designers, local students and local creative projects have been programmed so far.

In 2019 the public voted for their favourite image from an exhibition of over 700 photographs displayed in the Unseen Beautiful exhibition at Darlington Library.

Luke Piper and Mike Atkinson's photographs secured the most votes, and both subsequently worked with photographer Joanne Coates/Lens Think, to create this new exhibition of Luke and Mike's photographs. Both have a strong connection with the people and landscape of Darlington and the North East. Expect a beautiful exhibition.
