North East Chamber Of Commerce

Posted by on Sep 11, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

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!

Commissioning Artwork

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

Have you ever thought about commissioning a special piece of art & design but never quite knew how to go about it? Here at North East Art Collective we work very closely with our artists & designers who have been commissioned to do many pieces of art & design work. Francesca Simpson for her animal portraits, Rachel Watson for her bespoke jewellery for a wedding day and Darren Munday for a wedding anniversay!
‘I could not believe how easy it was to get a commission, Francesca was lovely. I was quite nervous as I was not sure how she would be able to capture his personality in a painting, but she did. Absolutely beautiful’
If you would like more information please just pop into the gallery or email us through our contacts page.

Introducing our new Artist Alan Mould..

Posted by on Jul 30, 2014 in Blog | Comments Off

Art and nature are my two great interests in life,
so living on the slopes of a beautiful river valley amid a wealth of
wildlife, I am never short of inspiration for painting and drawing.
As an artist I am primarily a watercolourist, preferring to use vibrant
colours and simplified forms to produce works in a more contemporary
style.My work often shows a sense of humour, typified in a four-year run of
cartoons in the prestigious BBC Wildlife magazine, and probably led to
the development of the caricature birds I create now, as I aim to give
the creatures I love observing a character of their own, while keeping
the elements of plumage, colour and form which makes them instantly
