An art exhibition featuring a variety of works is drawing to a close.

Six art studios from across the north east, who all provide services to local people experiencing mental health problems and other disabilities, joined forces to create ‘Lifelines’.

The exhibition, at the Bridge Gallery in Tynemouth Station until January 10, show glass work including a large glass chandelier, ceramics, cardboard assemblages and photography.

Funded by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the Lifelines project has allowed the North East Art Studios Partnership to bring in innovative lead artist Garry Hunter and creative producing CIC Fitzrovia Noir to coordinate a creative collaboration.

The studios in the partnership are North Tyneside Art Studio (NTAS) in North Shields; Chilli Studios, covering Newcastle and Gateshead; Bill Quay Art Group in Gateshead; Arts4Wellbeing in South Shields; Artrium in Hartlepool; Phoenix Art Group in Stockton.
