Strolling around Eldon Gardens on Friday myself and Az stumbled upon a seemingly little gallery. what we didn't know was that this was North East Arts Collective; a ten roomed TARDIS like gallery made up of over a hundred artists.
The gallery holds watercolours, wooden sculpture, photography, ceramics, furniture and more of over a 1000 pieces all from North East artists, because its what we need.
There were so many great pieces so here are just some of my favourites
I adore classic rocking horses and Drew Henderson makes an extensive collection of them. He also does a variety of things with wood, such as clocks, tables, wine holders and trunks. Az really liked the clocks like the one above.
How charming is Geordie Audrey? Her dress and gloves are all made from maps of Newcastle and the surrounding areas while the print is the classic Breakfast at Tiffany's poster.
I go to Eldon Square quite regularly but I often forget about Eldon Gardens, but there are so many excellent places. Definitely visit the North East Art Collective while you're there.
