Visited the Gallery at Berwick with Sarah to see the exhibition of work submitted by friends and contacts of Katie Stephenson and her late husband the abstract painter Ian Stephenson. Katie has made such an impressive art gallery from the old temple building near the bridges in Berwick. The Open Exhibition has a large number of pieces, mainly paintings but also textile pieces and 3d work, very well displayed together.   The watercolour ‘Waves’ is by Maggie Teremetz, and the triptych of the Quayside is by Richard Yeomans, both friends of mine from our Newcastle art student days.                          

Kate Stephenson has opened a wonderful new gallery in Berwick on Tweed, and has  started with an Open Exhibition from Saturday October 13th until November 2nd. The Watchtower is open from 12.00pm – 4.00pm every Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday.

Richard and Maggy (friends from  art student days) and I have all got paintings hung there along with many other artists who had connections with Kate and Ian Stephenson and art education in the North East.

I was so happy to manage to complete my ‘Purple Petals’ group of four canvasses, and to fix them together so that they lie quite flat.

I’ve got lots more plant type paintings in mind to finish ready for the next Open Studios in June.
