As we continue to fundraise we are delighted to announce that with sponsorship from Intu Eldon Square we will be presenting new work from artist:
‘A Slice of Life’
Opens to the public on 28 October and runs until mid December.
Alexander Millar, whose nostalgic, humorous depictions of the flat-capped, dark-suited working man of Tyneside have catapulted him to fame and fortune, is producing two new creations to coincide with the opening this autumn of a £25M restaurant development at intu Eldon Square.
The first of the new works, which reflect on the theme of family togetherness in the North-East, will take up permanent residence on the dividing shutter at one of the entrances to the new intu Eldon Square dining area, with the original oil painting of the image being auctioned late November and the proceeds divided between The Globe Gallery and The Bubble Foundation. The painting will be on view in the window of Globe from 17th October and accompanying exhibition with prints, paintings and sculpture for sale will open on 28th October.
Friday 7th and Saturday 8th October
