Members Information

Two exhibitions have been confirmed for 2018. The Gateshead Heritage Centre Exhibition, normally held in Summertime, has been set back to October because of commitments by St Mary’s to The Great Exhibition of the North which takes place between June and September. St Mary’s Exhibition will now start on 20th Oct and end on 8th Dec. Paintings hanging day is the 19th October.

The annual exhibition at The Shipley Art Gallery has been confirmed with the opening and preview taking place on the 17th November. The Exhibition will continue until the 22nd December 2018. Members' entry forms should be submitted on the 19th October and the art handing in date is 2nd November.

Mapping Contemporary Art in Heritage Environment: Creation, Consumption and Exchange.
GAS members have asked to form a Focus Group that will feed into the above Heritage Sites project in assisting with its aims;

-To map the trajectory of contemporary visual art in heritage sites in the UK,
-To understand how artists engage with the heritage context in the creation of contemporary art for heritage properties,
-To analyse how contemporary artworks commissioned for these contexts are received and consumed by heritage property visitors.

The first meeting took place at the Shipley Gallery on 27th April 2018. The Society's involvement will continue with visits to Gibside, Cherryburn and Holy Trinity Church, Sunderland as part of the study.
The study is organised by the University of Newcastle, with the University of Leeds and national and regional partners from the arts and heritage sectors. It is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. It runs from Jan 2017 to Dec 2019 but GAS’s involvement has now ended although we have been invited to attend a conference on the subject sometime next year when the findings will be reported.
