The Art of Newcastle ~Jan 2019 ~ part 4

After lunch in the Biscuit Factorywe went off to see the Laing Art Gallery. On the way, we came across a little church hall

and as you can see from the sign on the right (which I completely missed in the photo!) had an art exhibition. Well, we came for art, so decided to do a detour and see what was going on. It turned out to be a one-woman exhibition by one of the church’s congregation.

and this was the artist

Sarah Ann Davies

Her arty bits were interesting, with lots of cut and folded canvasses

but I don’t think I’d have them on my wall. The artist lady was very nice and chatty so we wished her luck and went on our merry way.

We spotted a Lutheran Church for German-speaking Geordies

and back by the blue student accommodation, this time sneaking a peek in the windows

There are a couple of furniture shops in the area.

😳 imagine waking up to all this bling!!!

Beds for children of insane parents. 🙂

Newcastle has its own version of Boris Bikes

and plenty of cafes

Channeling J.K.Rowling?

We went back over the flyover and spotted a breakdown

Not the best place to park.

and we peeked through the bars of the graffiti building corridor which is my featured image at the top of the post.

Wasted

The New Bridge Hotel nearby. Probably not a 4 star 🙂

Grim up north.

and then we got to the Laing gallery, but that can wait for the next post, so stay tooned for that!
