WATCH THIS SPACE

 

Berwick Watch Tower Gallery

A funny thing happened to me on a recent visit to Berwick, when I was inadvertently reunited with a series of Ian Stephenson prints I had helped edition at the Sunderland Arts Centre over thirty years ago.  Imagine my surprise turning up at the Watch Tower Gallery to be confronted with these images that I had printed and also the work of my former tutors Dave Gormley and Brian Sefton. The gallery made me so welcome; it is a beautiful space and shows great Contemporary Art, so if you are visiting Berwick make sure you put it on your list of places to visit.

This following review was written by members of U3A Berwick:

 

 

In contrast, many of Brian Sefton’s paintings have an almost photographic quality. When asked what he paints, he will tell you ‘rubbish’. Whereas most of us, when we think of landscapes, look to the horizon and grand pastoral views, Brian looks immediately in front of him, or at his feet and sees art in the detritus strewn around the countryside. His series of paintings of a discarded bike were colourful and beautiful. Other subjects were discarded plastic wrappings, egg boxes, and foil. He uses rubbish to represent ideas.

The third artist, Roy Dutton, who was unable to attend, produces exquisite small bronze ‘medallions’.

This is certainly an exhibition worthy of a second viewing.

 

 

Since retirement Dave Gormley has concentrated on  creating beautiful images that combine places which have inspired him (notably from his frequent visits to Northern Ireland) with his fascination with geometry. He plays with perspective and chooses elements of the landscape which are carefully placed within geometric spaces to produce crisp, bright and unusual landscapes.

 

    Eon-Arts Alice in Sunderland

Alice in Wonderland is 150 years old and this has generated many events throughout Sunderland.  The author of the story, Lewis Carroll, was a regular visitor to the city and there are many local links to the book.  Eon Arts celebrated Alice’s anniversary by hosting three special Chalk In workshops starting with the Cultural Spring’s super Summer Streets festival.  Next was a charity special on behalf of Cancer UK at Ashbrooke sports ground, before concluding at St. Aidan’s Academy Summer School.

Great Days with the Summer Streets.

What is going on here?

The Jabberwocky?

The Jabberwocky?

The finished piece has been given a twist and morphed into  a 3D interactive installation. This is on show with other suitably mad Alice exhibits at Sunderland Central Library for the next few weeks.  So don’t be late; get along to the Mad Hatters Tea Party and see what all of the fuss is about.
