The Hancock gallery welcomes international art to the North East. It will open with a retrospective of artist Alexander Millar.
The new fine art gallery is opening its doors in the heart of Newcastle on Saturday 27th April 2019 . The Hancock Gallery will launch with its first temporary show, ‘Alexander Millar: A retrospective’, a celebration of artist Alexander Millar’s highly prolific and nostalgic work.
Lee Stobbart, Gallery Director said “We want the gallery to become a place art enthusiasts can visit and return to time and time again to enjoy curated, stand-out artwork from national and international artists'”
Alexander Millar is an internationally successful contemporary impressionist whose drawings, paintings and sculptures appear in solo and group exhibits worldwide.
He is best known for his Scottish gadgies, landscapes, and representations of Scottish working life. ‘Alexander Millar: A retrospective’ will also feature his latest work: 9/11 firefighters, new American gadgies, and Peaky Blinders-inspired drawings and paintings.
The Hancock Gallery showcases artwork from around the world for the purposes of appreciation and collection, in a historic Georgian building in the centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The gallery’s three floors have been reimagined as a clean, inspired space for viewing art. Moving forward, the gallery will also be hosting workshops and be available for venue hire. Admission to the gallery and events is free.
The gallery will be exhibiting work from renowned national and international artists, providing a fresh opportunity for art enthusiasts to experience and collect international art locally.
At the conclusion of Millar’s show, a space in the gallery will become his permanent home, and a new headline exhibit will open.
The show features prints, paintings and sculptures from the artist’s private collection, as well as providing access to a selection of prints and sculptures that are no longer available anywhere in the world.
There will also be a guest collection from the Balman Gallery, which will be exhibited throughout a part of the top floor for a limited time. It includes eclectic national and international art across a range of mediums.
