‘Auld Hands’ Exhibition by Graham Hodgson
Venue: Cargo Fleet
When: 27/06/2014 – 15/08/2014
Graham Hodgson, managing director and lead artist of Hawthorn Arts Limited in Westoe Road, South Shields, has always been drawn by industrial and working-class landscapes.
He said: “I drew upon my childhood memories of hard-working Northern men.
“I get particular satisfaction from illustrating dark scenes, because they are not easy to paint well. I like the change that comes over the world at night.
“The Romans used to call it quiet time, and that’s the way it makes me feel – peaceful and silent.”
Graham’s exhibition will launch at the Preview Evening on Friday 27 June 2014 at The Heritage Gallery at Cargo Fleet and run until Friday 15 August 2014.
