This light and airy gallery situated on the ground floor tells the stories of the lives of the artists and makers who were either born, inspired or who made their career in the North East. It includes internationally important artists such as John Martin, Victor Pasmore and Thomas Bewick alongside Sowerby Glass, Newcastle silver and Maling pottery. There are also a number of interactive screens that guests can explore to gain insight to collections and stories of the North East. This is a ideal space for an evening drinks reception after your ceremony.
