The house lends itself to being on show as it is such an unusual building. The octagonal rooms make wonderful spaces for displaying art. We want the gallery to be an interesting experience for visitors with an eclectic mix of art. The art will veer towards reflecting environmental aspects, nature and history of the region. We hope to provide a relaxed atmosphere for you to enjoy the art in.
As the gallery is artist run there will usually be an artist available to talk to about the art on display. If you would like to commission a piece of art ask the resident artist Rose Di Mascio. There is a wide range of work on display and for sale including original paintings, prints, ceramics, bronze and wood sculptures, textiles, mosaics, jewellery and glass sculptures. The artists are from different areas of the North East and beyond.
The building itself reflects the history of the region in mining, bottle works and salt panning. It was originally built in 1720 as the old harbour masters house and has had a number of uses since.
The building has an unusual shape and numerous steps and due to listed building status we are unable to provide disabled facilities such as chair lifts.
The gallery is located next to Seaton Sluice Harbour on Collywell Bay Road which is a left hand turn off the Beresford Road from the Blyth direction. It is approximately 3 miles from Blyth and Whitley Bay and 1 mile down The Avenue from Delaval Hall. It is located on Google Maps.
There are buses every 10 minutes from Blyth and Whitley Bay. The bus stops are a 5 minute walk from the gallery.
