Counterweight, Newcastle Arts Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2024
Newcastle Arts Centre unveils its newest gallery exhibition. ‘Counterweight’ is a group exhibition exploring ideas of rituals, landscape and myth.
Curated by Jed Buttress, this open call exhibition showcases four local artists in the newly-refurbished Gallery at the Arts Centre, combining drawing, painting and sculpture.
Using timeless crafts such as textiles, ceramics and stonework, the artists engage with symbology and structure, etching their shared perspectives and personal mythologies into history with a North-East localised practice.
Featuring artworks by Sean Alec Auld, Mani Kambo, Laurie Powell and Bethany Stead, this is the second of two exhibitions from the ‘Brass Tacks’ project; a six-month programme of events, exhibitions and skills development opportunities for emerging and established artists in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Supported by the Creative Central: NCL programme, funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority and Newcastle City Council.
