Location: The Biscuit Factory Gallery, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Our Winter Exhibition brings together an eclectic mix of contemporary art, craft and design work from more than 200 artists. This season we welcome acclaimed Scottish painter Phil McLoughlin as our headline artist, with his new collection of original paintings.
This season’s highlights include still life paintings by talented emerging artist Chris Polunin; curious contemporary figures by Ben Davies Jenkins; and perennial gallery favourite Malcolm Teasdale with his nostalgic scenes of northern street life. Other highlights include a new collection of textile pieces from Valerie Wartelle, a new selection of bronze figurative pieces from Virginia Day and contemporary jewellery from Jessica Langford, Clare Lowe and DeeLyn Walsh. A year on from forging a partnership with national craft agency, Craft Scotland, we will also be showcasing six of its makers again this season, bringing together a mix of jewellery, lighting and even washable paperbaskets.
