Balman Gallery


Andy Balman, “the irrepressible entrepreneur” as described by the Daily Telegraph, has been involved in the arts and creative industries in the North East for 25 years. After setting up and managing the legendary Riverside Music venue in Newcastle for 15 years, he went on to establish Europe’s largest commercial art gallery, The Biscuit Factory, also in Newcastle. More recently he set up the Newcastle Gateshead Art Fair that attracts galleries and collectors from the UK and abroad.

Having worked with thousands of artists and collectors Andy decided to set up Balman Gallery to focus on developing the collectors market in the region. Balman Gallery represents a wide range of artists and makers from emerging artists at the start of their career to established artists. The Gallery shows art and craft ranging from ceramics, glass, and jewellery to sculpture and paintings.

Balman Gallery is based in the beautiful Grade 2 listed Town Hall Buildings in Corbridge, an historic village in the Tyne Valley west of Newcastle near Hadrian’s Wall. With 5 rooms over 2 floors there is always a wide range of work on display. We have many contacts within the industry and are able to source work by artists and makers not represented by us. We also recognise that collectors sometimes need to sell work and we are happy to offer a resale option.
