We are also happy to announce that we will be supporting a great local Charity who have been established in the North East for 36 years. Laura McBeth, Campaign Manager, approached the gallery to see if we would hold an Art Auction of postcard size original artworks, we were very pleased to be asked and more details will follow.
And finally, dates to remember-6th December-is Small Business Saturday were we will be celebrating in style being in the Top 100 in the country, so please come along for your Christmas Shopping, a glass of champagne and meet the artists!
For anyone who runs a small business knows it has its ups and downs and any support is greatly appreciated. We decided to join the North East Chamber of Commerce to help expand our business and I attended their first one day seminar- I was not disappointed! A great opportunity to shout about our great gallery and very proud to boast about the amazing artistic talent we have here in the North East. There were lots of opportunities to talk with other companies about many different subjects and also good to know that others feel the same, especially about the minefield of social media!
So we continue to spread the word of our great gallery in the heart of Newcastle and once again I would ask you to tell your colleagues, friends & family about us-we are a hidden treasure!
The Great North Run will have it’s first million runner on Sunday and the city has been celebrating this in style!
