Coronavirus update

Hello friends,

We hope that you are staying safe.

In light of government advice in relation to Coronavirus, and in line with other public art galleries, SAW will be closed until further notice. This includes exhibitions, Painting For Fun & Mixing Bowl.

We believe that art speaks to our souls, enriches our lives and supports our mental health. So for some creative sustenance Mixing Bowl will continue a creative weekly blog here.

As of May 2020, we have launched a creative programme (in colloboration with Dwellbeing) which you can engage with during lockdown.

Draws Together is an all-ages challenge to get drawing, imagining our hopes, dreams dreams and aspirations for the future of our gardens, landscape and community. Drawings will be displayed in SAW’s online gallery. Post-lockdown, these drawings will be transformed into a communal artwork.

Cooks join Lydia in weekly cooking demonstrations using those back-of-the-cupboard ingredients of households around Newcastle, providing us all with some culinary inspiration.

Grows a collective growing effort (spearheaded by community group Dwellbeing) to encourage windowsill growing of vegetables, contributing to food security.

Narrates a collective recording of everyday life during lockdown through writing (in any style or language), photographs, audio and video.

We’d love for you to join in, see for how to get involved

Love from,
The SAW Team
