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.

Sarah Blood @ the 5th Annual Frieze Week

The fifth annual Frieze week exhibition from Plus Art Projects, and the inaugural exhibition at the Mayor’s Parlour showcases bold and unconventional works by 67 artists, straight from the artists’ studios.

The exhibition includes a souvenir from the Chapman Brothers’ controversial Hell sculpture, neon artworks by Tracey Emin, Gavin Turk and David Batchelor, taxidermy sculpture by Polly Morgan, a myriad of paintings which range in subject and scale, amongst many other works. Art works are numbered, not conventionally listed; the viewer encounters ambitious, enticing and occasionally challenging artworks, directly, without influence of authorship.  The wide range of content and making gives this exhibition a pinhole view of some of the most exciting and challenging contemporary art in London now.

Plus Art Projects is known for its cutting edge intuitive response to curatorial pluralism, across a wide range of mediums and diversity of views, which stand in relation to one single approach or method of interpretation. Diversity of methodology is stressed by the inclusion of over 60 established and emerging artists working in painting, sculpture, neon, photography, taxidermy, film, drawing, mixed media works and high end takes on appropriation.
