There is no preview night for this exhibition
The exhibition comprises work produced over the last 10 years which, for the first time, has been put together as a single show. Although painted independently and separated chronologically by unrelated work, they demonstrate a periodic return to a strong theme of the unsaid or the unheard. Privileged knowledge. Skeletons. The root is, no doubt, personal and perhaps a consequence of being part of a large and diverse family but I leave observers to decode the paintings according to their own experience.
I exhibit in solo and shared shows, most recently in Richmond, Barnard Castle, Bridlington, Hull and Anglesey. Details of exhibitions, further examples of my work and associated awards can be found on my website,http://www.geoffhewitt.co.uk/.

GIBSIDE ART GROUP
Gibside Art Group's Exhibition showcases the work of around 40 local amateur artists drawn mainly from the local Rowlands Gill area of Tyne and Wear who meet on a weekly basis to paint and share their experience of painting. Some of the artists have only recently started to paint whilst others in the group have much more experience and regularly sell their work. The exhibition includes work in oils, watercolours, acrylics and pastels. The group take their inspiration from a wide variety of sources, with their work reflecting an equally wide mixture of styles - something to suit everyone's taste.
