Friday 12th June 2020The Byre Poem and New Book Coming, ‘An Ungoverned Sky’

This is Noel Connor’s poem ‘The Byre,’ which accompanies my painting ‘Window, Crossdykes Farm’ in ‘In the Pause of Passing’. Mike Tickell was kind enough to read the poem and Nat at Canny Productions​ filmed it.
 
Noel and I are currently working on a second book ‘An Ungoverned Sky’ - more news of that soon. Noel has been very busy writing in lockdown, and I’ve had far more time to paint than usual. I hope you enjoy the reading.

Thursday 13th February 2020Madeira

‘Madeira’ is the result of my first visit to the island with my partner, Alison, in 2018. It’s an extraordinary island. Just 14 x 70 miles in size, it’s packed with zones of different terrains. The light is clean and bright and everything from bananas to bougainvillea grows in the fertile land.‬

Thursday 13th February 2020Red Grooves, New Original and Print

This old house sits in Teesdale, between Westgate and Langdon Beck. 'Red Grooves' is surrounded by drift mines and backed by a long, deep scar that could have been formed by a melting glazier. It could either have been a farmhouse (there are crumbling remains of outbuildings too) or a mining manager’s house, as iron ore, coal and lead were all mined in that area. Both original and print are for sale.
 

A little further down the valley lies Flushimere and Flushimere House, which I have also painted.

Friday 22nd November 2019Great Whittington Fell, Countryfile

 Countryfile filmed me painting in two Northumbrian locations - the show will be screened on Sunday 1st December. One location was this old building just north of Corbridge, above Stagshaw, near the Errington Arms - many of you will recognise it.

Matt and Dan from Countryfile filmed me painting from the inside of the old building, looking out through a window to the north. The second location was Wall Fell Farm and they also filmed me in my Prudhoe gallery.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Colt Crag Reservoir

There's a unique chance to see a range of six new paintings in my Prudhoe gallery right now. I’ve never released so many watercolours at once, as each takes months, or even over a year to complete. Health problems I had earlier this year made it impossible for me to finish the paintings until last month.
 
 
 
‘Colt Crag Reservoir’ is one painting that I worked on for some 18 months. Colt Crag is north of Corbridge, near Colwell. This painting is available as a print also and you can see it in the gallery from next week.

Saturday 27th July 2019My First Prudhoe Art Trail

 I very much enjoyed the first Prudhoe Art Trail, and the businesses all along Front Street really got behind it. Dozens of people visited the gallery every day and walked along the trail, enjoying paintings, wood turnings, glass and sculpture displayed in many of the shops and cafes.
 
 
Prudhoe Painters
 
Thank you Claudia Quayle, artist, for the photos of Prudhoe painters in my gallery. Claudia is on the right of the photograph below of the launch event.  The other photos feature artists in other Prudhoe shops and cafes.
 
We hope that this will become an annual event in the town.

Friday 12th July 2019Prudhoe's First Art Trail, 13 - 20 July, Tomorrow!

Prudhoe's first Art Trail begins tomorrow, showcasing both artists from in and around Prudhoe and Front Street's many independent businesses.
 
This article in the Journal tells you more and features Claudia Quayle's painting. The gallery is acting as hub to the event and we hope it will be one of many!
