[1st September – end October]
Newcastle’s Blagdon Gallery is hosting an exhibition of new original pastel paintings and limited edition prints by the artist Edwin Blackburn, which continues throughout September and October.
The Northumberland-born and based artist pays special attention to detail in his work; while he retains some interest in landscapes, he is happiest painting the sea and coastline, rivers, and the vessels that inhabit them. He takes particular enjoyment in the challenge of portraying ships, capturing water and its movement, reflected light and the ever-changing moods of the weather, which are crucial to marine painting.
