A ‘must see’ exhibition which shines a light on Northern art. From hyperreal to abstract, printmakingand sculpture, this high-profile show celebrates contemporary artists from the North of England. daily 10–5 t @newlightart f NewLightArt Founded in 1986 by equestrian sculptor James Osborne, Osborne Studio Gallery specialised for many years almost exclusively in sportingart but has in recent years been branching out more into wildlife and landscape paintingand sculpture. Their latest exhibition, by Jessica Gale, is an excellent example of just how far this process has gone, the boldly abstract character of the Thames series of paintings that form the core of her latest show there seemingly unlike anythingelse on their roster. The work marks quite a distinct step in Gale’s artistic career also, which began eight years ago, aged 42, followinga visit to Amsterdam and seeingRembrandt; the emotional, poetic associations of the Thames opened up a rich vein of inspiration, their worlds often embedded in the paintings’ surfaces.
