02/04/10ArtsBank is a major new artistic initiative, privately funded, and based on Teesside. ArtsBank aims to give a massive boost to the work of creative people across the north east, and beyond. Situated in a substantial Victorian property (the old HSBC bank) in the heart of the beautiful and spectacular resort of Saltburn-by-the-Sea. The whole building has been transformed into a five-floor gallery and centre for the arts, with something for everyone. ArtsBank will showcase more than eighty visual artists. They are the cream of an enormous and rich crop of northern talent: painters, photographers, sculptors and craftspeople, from all generations. Some are renowned. Some are neglected. Some are unknown.
