The largest commercial art fair in the North East returns to the Sage Gateshead, 1st - 4th October 2009. Once again I will be representing myself at this years event, at the Jim Edwards stall number P9, just at the top of the main central stairs. I will be exhibiting my most recent cityscapes, coastal scenes and abstract work, aswell as my new range of prints.

Berwick Exhibition

Walls and Bridges - 150th Year commemoration of the death of Robert Stephenson

As part of the Stephenson 150th anniversary festival, commemorating the life and work of Robert Stephenson, the Gymnasium Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed will be hosting an exhibition on the theme of Walls and Bridges. The exhibition will include selected contemporary artworks by local, national and international artists inspired by the architecture of the town. The Gymnasium Gallery is located on Berwick-upon-Tweed’s walled Ramparts in a town with four distinctive bridges. I have been invited to submit four large canvases for the exhibition. As a cityscape painter, I am very interested in the iconic scenery of Berwick-upon-Tweed, in particular the bridges and the red rooftops. And this forms the basis of the proposed paintings. As with the attached incomplete picture, the four paintings are in progress and will (hopefully!) be finished by the end of the month, ready for the exhbition which runs from the 7th October.

7th - 24th October 2009 Wednesday - Sunday 12pm - 4pm
