The gallery before REALITY CHECK
The NewBridge Project have recently secured a site in Gateshead that will be the home of the Collective Studio and a gallery. Located on High Street, it used to be Poundland and prior to that was Woolworths. Needless to say that it is not set up as gallery and studios and requires a total revamp and rebuild in order for it to be fit for purpose. Since getting the keys to the premises a few weeks ago, Dean from TILT Workshop has been working all out to get the space up and running and ready for the opening today. He has had a tremendous amount to do, ranging from plumbing the toilets to building the studios. The gallery is just part of the building. On Wednesday and Thursday we did the last coats of paint, cleaning etc
and here is the gallery before we installed the show:
Come tonight to see what it is like now!
