05 November 2016 - 05 February 2017

All day during gallery opening hours

The work of Richard Hobson buzzes with the intensity and vibrancy of an artist completely absorbed in capturing the spirit of the North East. Towering cranes of Tyneside shipyards, industrial Northumbrian landscapes and excited Cullercoats day-trippers were all regular subjects. Hobson worked quickly and instinctively, outdoors in all seasons and weathers, giving his paintings and drawings a sense of gritty realism.

Hobson held his first solo exhibition at the Shipley Art Gallery in 1972, and exhibited regularly throughout his career. He has shown work at the Royal Academy, London, the Royal Scottish Society of Watercolour Painters, Edinburgh, and at numerous galleries throughout the North East. His work is held by Tyne & Wear Museums & Archives and in private collections nationally.

Gallagher & Turner and the Laing Art Gallery have worked together, in collaboration with the artist’s estate, to present this unique exhibition spanning two venues in Newcastle City Centre.
