A husband-and-wife-run art gallery has welcomed its first artist of 2016.

Rachael Eden’s work will be on display at Whitley Bay’s Rickwood’s Gallery until the end of the month.

The gallery has been open since September and is forging links with local artists such as Rachael, of Whitley Bay.

She is currently working on paintings inspired by her interest in science fiction. The gallery, in Station Road, is open 10am to 6pm Tuesday to Saturday.
