Gallagher & Turner was established in Newcastle in 1990 by Paul Gallagher and Clare Turner. Formerly based in the St. Thomas Street workshops, our gallery on St. Mary's Place has a lively, changing programme of exhibitions, whilst our workshop in Gateshead houses all of the technical expertise to get your frames looking beautiful.
We have exhibited and framed work by many highly regarded artists, including David Hockney, Francis Bacon, Barbara Rae, Antony Gormley, and Elizabeth Blackadder. With over seventy years' combined experience, we specialise in Modern British art, as well as antique Japanese woodblock prints, and pieces from mid-Century France and America. We also regularly work with exciting, upcoming artists from the North East and elsewhere in the UK in order to showcase the best new work that the region can offer.
We have framed works for several museums, universities and other institutions, including The Hatton Gallery, The Laing Art Gallery, Auckland Castle, Northumbria University and Newcastle University.
With experience of framing everything from 18th Century portraiture through contemporary art, posters and family photographs, we're sure to be able to provide top-notch service for your framing needs.
We aim to make high-quality art accessible to everyone in Newcastle, and indeed further afield, whether it’s something to treasure on your own walls or something extra special we show in the gallery. Our exhibitions, and advice on framing, are always free, and we’re happy to talk through anything you want a better understanding of. Just come and see one of our team when you’re ready.
