THE NEWCASTLE PAINTERS AT JESMOND DENE HOUSE
2 DECEMBER 2016 – 31st MARCH 2017
The Newcastle Painters
The Newcastle Painters who will be exhibiting at Jesmond Dene House from the 2 December have been going strong for over 20 years. Under the tutelage of Bill Varley, who encourages total seriousness, they are a constant delight with work which astonishes in its vitality. From a wide variety of backgrounds, (some are former art students, for example, while others are teachers) they also come from as far afield as Berwick in the north, and Northallerton in the south. Their geographical diversity is matched by a multiplicity of styles and outlooks, from sumptuous abstracts to moody, mysterious landscapes and still-life’s of blazing colour. They have impressively acquired, in Alan Bennett’s memorable phrase, “The Habit of Painting”.
