In the Eldon Garden wing of the Eldon Square shopping centre, you will be able to find the North East Art Collective. Founded in 2010 the North East Art Collective is a fantastic venue for discovering local art on any trip to Newcastle or the North East.

The artists are not chosen for the price of their work but instead the unique quality that they bring to the gallery. It’s an award-winning venue, being one of the 100 top UK small businesses in 2014, which earned then a visit to Downing Street as a part of the North East’s delegation to highlight the region’s talent.

The North East Art collective not only creates opportunities for artists to exhibit but also for members of the public to be able to purchase it and take it home. While many people love art, it is well recognised that it is often far too expensive for many of us to own at home. To make it easier, the North East Art Collective is affiliated with the ‘Own Art’ initiative, enabling you to break the price of the art over ten months with an interest-free loan. This means guests can take something that they love home with them on the day.

A fantastic venue for discovering local art on any trip to Newcastle or the North East

Starting with just a few artists, they now have eleven display rooms that show off all the various forms that art can take. From sculpture, watercolour, and acrylic to photography, oil, and pastels, there is something for everyone in these rooms. Much of the work is also practical, with carved tables and dressers and wonderful ceramics to add an artistic flair to your home. The gallery stock is refreshed on a weekly basis, so you’ll see something new every time you visit, and if you can’t make it in, their online shop connects you to the work from the comfort of your home.

The North East Art collective is also heavily involved with charitable works, having raised over £20,000 for local charities, with £10,000 of this going to Newcastle foodbank helping those who are most in need. So, on your trip to Newcastle, purchasing a piece of art from the North East of England will enable to you enjoy some fantastic local talent and know you’re supporting culture in the region.
