Newcastle’s Brampton Museum and Art Gallery is set to partially reopen this weekend, welcoming visitors to its first exhibition in the new Jim Wain Courtyard Gallery space.
The museum has been closed for the last 18 months. Thanks to funding from the National Lottery and the support of Newcastle Civic Society, extensive work has been carried out to redevelop the council-owned museum, and to renew its offering to visitors. The new gallery is named after one of Newcastle Civic Society’s founders. A new cafe is also set to open shortly.
The first exhibition in the new space, “Arthur Berry: A Ragged Richness”, is presented by Burslem’s Barewall Gallery. It will show the work of artist Arthur Berry, often dubbed the Lowry of The Potteries.
A series of events also runs alongside the exhibition, including talks, a film showing, a portrait workshop, and an art market. Full details here:
“Berry is one of the most unique artists in British Art showing his own idiosynchronatic style which is a cross between 20th century European modern art and gritty industrial localism.” Brampton Museum
AirSpace offers Open Call to artists
AirSpace gallery in Hanley is currently offering an open call to artists to apply to exhibit in their window.
The successful artist will receive a fee towards costs and, potentially, will have their artwork seen by thousands of people passing by.

NEW YEAR ->> NEW OPPORTUNITIES - Open Call to exhibit #InTheWindow now live - details at the link
The open call reads: “A brand new open call opportunity for 2022, to exhibit in one of the country’s leading artist-led art galleries. The AirSpace Gallery Window reaches a large, varied and appreciative daily audience and this is a chance both to exhibit finished works and to test ambitious new work in an established gallery setting. We encourage submissions from artists working in any medium, and whilst we will look carefully at all submissions, an advantage in selection will be gained from proposing work which shows an understanding of and realises the possibilities of the space.”

PODCAST: Light Over Winter
We gave this exhibition by Appetite a shout-out last week, and it continues at the Newcastle Common arts space until Saturday 29th.
The editor, Jerome, now has a short podcast to share. In his day job he attended the exhibition’s preview event and interviewed a number of the participating photographers. They told him about the importance of their WhatsApp group, how photography gives them a voice, and how excited they are to see their images on a gallery wall. Apple pies get a special mention too.
Listen to the podcast on Appetite’s website, link in tweet:
Happy #LoveNUL week!
