An art gallery is launching a new week-long exhibition at the end of this month.

Aura 100 Days A Numinous Line will be on show from July 23 to August 1 at The Wall North Contemporary Gallery in Hexham.

The exhibition, which features several North East artists, as well as some from further afield, is intended as a creative response to the difficult and unusual times presented by the coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Artists whose work is shown in the exhibition include Matilda Bevan, Chris Dorsett, Gill Germain, Peter Hanmer, Jenny Purrett, Claudia Sacher, Teresa Toms and Gilbert Ward – as well as the gallery’s founder and director Enrique Azocar.

Enrique said: “Many of us have been working during lockdown. It is an eclectic mix of figurative and conceptual art. All of the work we have done has never been shared with the public, but showing it now is way to re-embrace our community.

Artists from the gallery have already embraced their community during the pandemic, however, when it raised nearly £3,000 for the NHS in an exhibition which ran during July and August last year.

Northern Lights: An Online Exhibition in Aid of NHS Charities Together saw 50 per cent of sales from featured artworks donated to charity.

Enrique hopes that the gallery, which is also his studio space, will be able to host two shows a year, and sit between the Baltic in Newcastle and a traditional ‘good’ art gallery that would find in many towns and cities.

Aura 100 Days A Numinous Line is on show to the public for both weekends from July 23 to August 1, and available to view by appointment between 2pm and 7pm during the week in between.

Enrique finished by saying: “We want to show good art as people are waking up to life again. People connect with art on different levels and that’s a beautiful thing.”
