Past Exhibition

  • Welcome to Gateshead

    Monday 7 September 2015 to Thursday 17 September 2015
    • WELCOME TO GATESHEAD is an exhibition for Northumbria University students at Sanctuary Artspace, a gallery installed along the north wall of St Edmund's Chapel on Gateshead High Street.

      Have you just arrived in the new halls of residence in Trinity Square? Are you looking to explore our wonderful town? Then this exhibition is for you!

      Sanctuary Artspace interviewed a dozen shoppers in Trinity Square and asked them to nominate their favourite places in Gateshead. Jimmy and Freda, regular church members at St James and Bede Church, Wordsworth Street, chose the beautiful Dene in Saltwell Park. If you haven't visited this fabulous park before there is a regular bus service from Gateshead Interchange.

      The 53 and 54 which leave every 10 minutes during the day, and will get you there in 5 minutes. For other recommendations on places to explore check out the full exhibition which runs from 8th-25th September. Our opening times we Mon-Thurs 12-4pm. The gallery is just 1 minute away from Trinity Square on Gateshead High Street (opposite Poundland). For further info call Jim on 07918 659088.

      A big thanks to Richard Clatworthy for taking the photos!
