In Our Element: Encounters with the Coast

Tue – Fri, 10.30am – 5pm; Sat 11am – 4pm

Gallagher & Turner

This group exhibition brings together eight artists, celebrating the beauty and awe of the English Coastline. Artists include Ruth Bond, Andrew Cheetham, Melvyn Evans, Crispian Heath, Maria Laffey, Sarah Ross-Thompson, Kelly Stewart & Nicola Young.

We all hold personal memories of these wild and windswept encounters with the coast, weekend jaunts to Bamburgh, staring out to see. Through paint, print and glass, these artists work from imagination and observation to create wonderfully poetic and atmospheric images of these dramatic, iconic, and familiar landscapes. This is a show that hopes to encapsulate these memorable encounters and the feeling of being by the sea.
