‘Counterweight’ is a group exhibition exploring ideas around ritual, landscape and myth.

Curated by Jed Buttress, this open call exhibition showcases four local artists in the newly-refurbished Gallery at the Arts Centre, combining drawing, painting and sculpture.

Using timeless crafts such as textiles, ceramics and stonework, the artists engage with symbology and structure, etching their shared perspectives and personal mythologies into history. Featuring artworks by Sean Alec AuldMani KamboLaurie Powell and Bethany Stead, this is the second of two exhibitions from the Brass Tacks project, a six-month programme of events, exhibitions and skills development opportunities for emerging and established artists in Newcastle upon Tyne.
