Exhibitions in NewcastleGateshead

NewcastleGateshead offers visitors and locals an excellent variety of world-class cultural venues that hold exhibitions of all sizes. From leading artists like Yoko Ono to smaller North East artists - art galleries in Newcastle and Gateshead cater for every art enthusiast.

Gateshead's BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art is the only non-TATE venue outside of London to host the coveted Turner Prize and is recognised by many as one of the country's best examples of a modern art venue. As well as housing some of the best local exhibitions it provides an ever-changing calendar from critically-acclaimed artists from around the globe.

The Laing Art Gallery Newcastle has an impressive collection of art and sculpture with its Newcastle exhibition programme renowned for bringing the biggest names in historic, modern and contemporary art to the North East. There permanent displays of John Martin's breathtaking The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and William Holman Hunt's poignant painting of Isabella and the Pot of Basil are always worth a visit.

Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art in Sunderland brings new exhibitions from emerging artists in the region and should be an essential stop for any art-lover's itinerary.

The Biscuit Factory, the UK's biggest commercial gallery, is the perfect place to start or expand your personal collection. Formerly a Victorian warehouse, the beautiful and dynamic gallery space is set over two floors and displays a range of fine art, sculpture, prints and crafts.
