art exhibition, Customs House, South Shields

Customs House exhibition

I like the simplicity of art galleries, clean lines, clean walls, clean spaces, and this case clean glass too. Art galleries should be seen as places of reflection, clean places where one can divest all prior thought and approach with an open mind.

This is an interior of the Customs House in the Mill Dam, South Shields, and the table with the black glass vase and black roses affords  you a comfortable place to sit, look, think, and fill in the visitors book.

In the background (where I have upped the levels considerably to increase the contrast), we can see an exhibition by local girl Paula Lees from South Shields. It’s her first public showing and her art is vibrant and exciting using a variety of media including paints, pen and inks, and fabrics too.

If you are passing through, why not drop in to the Customs House where her work can be bought with the help of an interest free loan.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 30mm lens, 1/45 second, f4, iso 800
