Our last open exhibition in 2019
We are excited to announce the launch of our second Open Exhibition of work by local artists this November. The exhibition will showcase an abundance of artistic talent, featuring work submitted by artists from across the North East, many of whom will be new to our gallery. The show will bring together a diverse range of practices, from landscapes to abstract paintings; etchings to screen prints; sculpture to jewellery; and celebrate the wealth of creativity in our region. Newcastle and the wider North East is home to a thriving art scene including several artist-led studios, museums and independent gallery spaces. After a difficult year, where the creative industries have been hit hard by the pandemic, we also know they are central to our recovery. The creative industries have the capacity to change behaviour, bring people together, empower communities and transform individual experience. Our first Open Exhibition in 2019 was a really varied show, which contained colourful pop-art prints, delightfully intricate drawings and traditional landscape paintings alongside contemporary abstract works and geometric pieces. We also exhibited figurative works exquisitely carved from natural stone, delicate silver jewellery and striking cast glass work. It was a lively exhibition and a really well-attended preview. We are still working with some of the artists we met through our last Open Exhibition and are excited to see what the next one will look like. This exhibition will provide a chance to discover new creative voices and give a fresh outlook on creativity in our region. Artists will have the opportunity to work with our team to showcase their work in our city centre gallery, which has been running for the last thirty years. We view the open call process as a great way to start new relationships with artists and look forward to welcoming these new faces to the gallery alongside more established artists, and to giving a new platform to the breadth of creative talent that we live amongst.
