James Drinkwater Survey Exhibition on Show at Newcastle Art Gallery Until 11 August

4 June 2019

James Drinkwater has a major survey exhibition on display at the Newcastle Art Gallery. The Sea Calls Me By Name follows the very personal story about the artist's hometown of Newcastle and his familial memories—the background of his 2018 exhibition Looking for Urchins and Louis Ferrari at Nanda\Hobbs. 

The exhibition also includes an extensive collection of painting, sculpture, ceramics, works on paper and installation works from his travels to Berlin, Kenya, Paris and Tahiti over the past ten years. Drinkwater is known to immerse himself in the environment of the places he paints exploring the connections between art, cultural and personal histories. 

The Sea Calls Me By Name opened to record breaking crowds on Friday evening with around 1000 people entered the doors. It is an absolute "must see" exhibition. It runs until 11 August at Newcastle Art Gallery

For more information about the exhibition visit the Newcastle Art Gallery website


Review | James Drinkwater's survey exhibition at Newcastle Art Gallery

12 June 2019

James Drinkwater is the most recent Newcastle-based artist to be given an extensive survey exhibition by the Newcastle Art Gallery. This is a remarkable privilege for an artist still in his mid-30s, since such surveys normally document an evolving career over maybe 50 years of making and exhibiting art.
