Because of the lockdown, the AGN will be closed for at least the month of April.

The Art Gallery of Northumberland reopened on February 23, 2021 - admittance by reservation only.
They have implemented new practices and policies to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience:

Currently On View: Leszek Wyczolkowski | Equilibrium.

In his print-based works, Wyczolkowski's familiar geometric abstractions incorporate simplified, organic shapes and detailed techniques, all arranged in embossed squares, with colours that are occasionally echoed in the large paintings. This impulse towards geometric abstraction-including intersecting planes and floating shapes-seems to be Wyczolkowski's primary interest, continuing the investigation of reductive form and colour so evident in his paintings.
