Bewick in Gateshead
An exhibition looking at the work of Thomas Bewick and those who followed in his footsteps.
2012 marks the 200th anniversary of Thomas Bewick’s move to 19 West Street in Gateshead.
Examples of his much loved work will be on display, illustrating the breadth of his work and his capacity to incorporate domestic life into his engravings. Throughout the month of May there will be Blackwork demonstrations by Linda Morris championing the images from Bewick – there are also activities for families to enjoy based around techniques used by Bewick.
The Exhibition is launched on Tuesday 1st of May and runs through until the end of the month.
