Tyne Art Fair. Old Low Light
Because we live in the north-east it’s possible to become blasé about the many stunning views and iconic buildings that can be found here. Sometimes it takes an artist’s eye for us to reconnect with the wonders that surround us, and, I think it’s fair to say, the Tyne Art Fair is resplendent with such wonders.
It features work from some of Tyneside’s most talented artists such as Joanne Wishart whose vibrant works are bursting with character and no little charm (that’s her Cullercoats – pictured). Other artists taking part include Jim Edwards whose vivacious take on contemporary cityscapes are well known throughout the region and Peter ‘Deetz’ Davidson who laces plenty of humour into his local views. In all there are 15 artists showing their work at this show, with the exhibition being just one of the many reasons to call into the wonderful Old Low Light in December. Check their website for their full programme of events and exhibitions.
