Gallagher & Turner present our first ever Open Exhibition, which showcases this abundance of cultural talent, featuring artworks submitted by artists from across the North East, many of whom are new to our gallery. The exhibition brings together the diverse range of practices of over thirty artists, from landscapes to abstract paintings; etchings to screen prints; stonemasonry to jewellery; celebrating the wealth of creativity in our region.
4th July - 17th August 2019
In our Summer exhibition ‘Coast’, Gallagher & Turner presented a varied selection of paintings and prints that capture and celebrate the best of our shores, with beaches and seascapes by great British artists, focusing in particular on Northumberland and our local North East coast.
3rd May - 29th June 2019
Just seeing Peter Quinn’s bright watercolours is like taking a holiday, immersing yourself in the vibrant colours and spirit of foreign cities, each work capturing a true sensation of its location. Whether painting vivid street scenes in Crete or Mexico City, verdant riverside scenes in London or Glasgow, or the architectural wonders of Venice and Ljubljana, each image has its own life and vitality.
21st March - 27th April 2019
In Formations, two giants of 20th Century abstract painting, Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015) and Albert Irvin (1922-2015), collide with the work of young Newcastle-based painters Oliver Doe and Josh Raz in an exciting trans-historical exhibition that will explore how we see the modern world through painting and printmaking. It will also explore the influence of modernism on contemporary art, and how elusive views of our world can be rendered through bold colour and dynamic forms.
31st January - 16th March 2019
Jill Campbell’s expressive paintings are inspired by the striking landscapes of the North East. Almost every day, she walks through the ancient mining area of Cockfield Fell, absorbing the colours and textures that the landscape produces through changing light and weather.
