Contemporary works of art from five emerging artists goes on show in town’s shopping centre centre

A NEW exhibition is on show in Whitley Bay featuring sculptural works, installations and drawings by five artists.

The Hold my Coat exhibition is in the Park View shopping centre.

It includes work on show by five artists – Jane Evans, Ian Metcalfe, Jeremy Cosmo Davies, Annie O’Donnell and Annie Ravazzo.

The exhibition brings together contemporary art works by emerging artists who are currently MA, PhD, final year and recently graduated students based in Newcastle, Sunderland and Leeds.

Each of the artists has their own separate practice but there are underlying themes of art history, re-contextualising the everyday and the use of traditional and non-traditional materials in all their work.

The exhibition in the empty shop space is on show throughout the week, and will be open on Saturday from noon to 3pm to allow visitors the chance to investigate the works further.
