Eight By Eight Fine Art Exhibition - 17th to 31st March 2012

This Saturday past I visited the Eight By Eight exhibition at the Newcastle Arts Centre on Westgate Road in Newcastle.  This is an annual exhibition of ceramics, paintings, sculpture and 3D design work of 8 selected staff and students of Newcastle College Art Departments, covering many styles and genres. The exhibition this year offers an incredibly vibrant and colourful display in a lovely venue.

If you've never been to the Arts Centre, it's well worth a visit if you're in town.  There is a great artists' materials shop, a lovely gift shop, a cafe, a pub and a pottery all within the same very interesting, old-fashioned courtyard complex!

Lovely cake stands by Jess Cohen, tutor on FdA
