EMERGING ARTIST SAM WOOD PRESENTS
VISIONS OF NEWCASTLE
AT 24 HIGH BRIDGE, NEWCASTLE
Preview 7th September, 6pm to Late (free wine and DJ)
until 15th September @ 24 High Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne
A collection of recent paintings by Newcastle born emerging artist Sam Wood will preview this week on Friday 7th September from 6pm and be available to view until 15th September.
Born in 1994, Sam graduated from Newcastle College with a degree in Art specialising in painting, and has recently completed his BA Honours in Fine Art at Falmouth University, Cornwall.
Working in oil paint, Sam creates large pictures responding to the condition of city life. His work is inspired by the iconic and historic architecture, which the city is renowned for. Sam is also drawn to the unusual corners of the city forcing the viewer to reflect on different aspects of Newcastle.
Sam has already been tipped as one of the North East’s artists to watch in a national feature entitled “Invest in the Leading Artists of Tomorrow.” This is an opportunity to purchase one of his works at a very reasonable cost with prints starting at just £40 and an original oil painting from £450.
One of Sam’s most talked about paintings (for which he had to request permission to paint) is his rendition of the infamous horse punching incident at St. James’ Park Derby Day in 2013, and will be available to view and purchase during the run of the show.
The show opens for preview on Friday evening with drinks and music, and will run until Saturday 15th September. Entry is FREE.
