Cowgate Illuminations Showcase

Monday 5th November, 4pm – 8.30pm
The Cowgate Centre, Houghton Avenue, Cowgate, Newcastle, NE5 3HY

Cowgate Illuminations is a new commission from Wunderbar   and Newcastle City Council Arts Development Team   that aims to illuminate Cowgate’s local community centre through the design and development of a lighting installation, led by local residents and community groups.

Neon artist Sarah Blood   has been working with a range of groups that use the centre in an exploration of interactive lighting techniques and design. Sarah has inspired the local residents to contribute their ideas to the design of the final installation, which will be the synthesis of these activities.

Bonfire Night Celebrations in Cowgate on Monday 5th November from 4pm – 8.30pm, where we will be featuring the first showcase of work created by the local community. There will be neon and electroluminescent wire installations, neon cupcakes and temporary tattoos and, of course, a fantastic bonfire and fireworks display.

Hot off the press! Five new lithographs by Narbi Price


“This new set of lithographs is my third collaborative project with Hole Editions. They are based on the locations of the Whitechapel Murders of 1888, as they are today, now variously car parks, schoolyards, loading bays etc. There is no immediate indication to the viewer of the depicted site’s histories. The only acknowledgement is that the work’s titles are suffixed with the victim’s initials in brackets – it is therefore possible to decode the provenance of the site. The experience and reading of the work changes irrevocably with knowledge of the history of the depicted site. By withholding or encoding the historical significances of the depicted sites, I hope to question how the formal selection of the imagery and the process of drawing can evoke a mood and suggest an autonomous authority and to explore the relationship between a site and its depiction. It represents something of a shift in both my approach to the drawing process and in sequential working. It’s also the first time that I have revisited images that I have used to make prior paintings from, in print. This part of the process has been particularly useful, the benefit of the increased time spent with the images and the heightened familiarity was a useful structure to loosen up my thoughts about the kind of marks made and gestures used. The collaborative approach imbues these prints with a confidence impossible without the technical excellence and support offered by Hole Editions.
