Opening 14th October 2011 is Auction Room at The Globe Gallery Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The auction is part of a major fundraising drive towards the continuation and development of Globe in the fantastic ex-Co-op bank premises in the centre of Newcastle.
I am supporting the gallery by donating a series of small screen prints to the fund raising auction. I regularly walked past the Globe Gallery when it was based in North Shields and visited exhibitions at their Carliol Sq Newcastle venue. Their current venue, an ex-Co-op bank in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, has to be the best yet!
Globe Gallery have always supported graduate students in the North East amd been at the forefront of contemporary art in the North East. The Gallery has been an Arts Council RFO for the past six years but were unfortunately not awarded NPO status this year.
The auction catalogue will be available online. Bids can be placed by visiting the gallery or via the online catalgoue. There will then be a live auction in late November. Check out the website or try and make it to the venue Friday night!
