Gateshead

Art Appreciation

We have ad hoc meetings at Shipley Art Gallery, Prince Consort Road, Gateshead, to coincide with doing research and tours of the stores in the basement. We currently have 6 members and more are welcome. All of the group members have an interest in art or art history. Members choose paintings they like from the archives and research the artist and painting using information stored at the Shipley and from the internet. Tours for the public of selected paintings in the archives are arranged by Shipley staff and conducted by group members.

For Behind the Scenes Tours, Shipley Art Gallery, Google shipleyartgallery.org.uk or press link.

Thursday 16th April
