Gallery North is an important new addition to Newcastle's burgeoning art scene. This is a university gallery with vision and great potential; a public space for the free, disinterested exchange of ideas as well as for sheer visual delight.
Gallery North will provide not just the contemplative setting that exhibitions need but also the sense of energy, expertise and intellectual and imaginative adventure that a university environment can bring. You can expect big international names as well as emerging home-grown talent; and cutting edge new art as well as exhibitions of a broader, more historical nature.
Gallery North is seeking corporate support to fund a range of activities and future exhibitions. Any contribution to the Gallery is greatly valued, and is essential to the continued support of emerging creative talent and the region's flourishing art scene.
