SUBTEXT opens at 6.00pm on Friday 28 March at Back to Back Galleries
SUBTEXT is an exhibition that explores the links between literature and the visual arts. Taking place in conjunction with the Newcastle Writers Festival (4-6 April 2014), a group of local artists have been asked to read a book by a Newcastle writer participating in the festival and use it as the inspiration for an artwork. In their own art form, each artist has created a visual narrative based on and inspired by the book.
Rosemarie Milsom, manager of the Newcastle Writers Festival will open the exhibition. Join with us for a fabulous celebration of the artists and writers that make up Newcastle’s rich cultural community.
The exhibition, curated by Dr Margaret McBride runs from 28 March to 13 April 2014.
