30th Anniversary

Alan Reed Art 1984-2014

30th Anniversary

Thank you to all our customers who came along and supported us at our Christmas Party weekend in November. We hope you enjoyed your complimentary goody bag to go with the paintings and Christmas Cards you purchased.

Our 30th Anniversary Christmas Exhibition is currently on view at my Studio & Gallery in Ponteland until 24th December. Our usual opening hours are 9:30-5pm Tuesday to Saturday although we will try to accommodate customers outside of these hours too.

There’s usual ample parking space on our drive and along Elm Road that runs alongside our home and you will be offered fresh coffee or tea on arrival.

The Christmas Exhibition is a mixed show of original paintings, limited edition prints and Christmas cards depicting scenes of the North East, Scotland, Italy and the Middle East.

Over the following 10 months I will be holding a number of other events and exhibitions outside from our Studio and Gallery to celebrate my 30th Anniversary which you can find out about by subscribing to our newsletter.

In January I will be showing my painting “Last Light, Ruwi” at the Mall Galleries, London, which was shortlisted for Artists & Illustrators “Artist of the Year”. The Reader’s vote will be announced at the Private View 6th January. The exhibition continues until 17th January. You can still vote for me here by clicking on this link.

30th anniversary celebrations continue when I will exhibiting at Spennymoor Town Hall 7th- 28th February. Further events are planned for March and April (including the launch of the City Church Portraits at the CastleGate) before we set off to Umbria, Italy for a week. I will be teaching on our painting holiday at a beautifully restored church Chiesa del Carmine.

We still have a few places available if you are interested in coming along. Six of the guests from last year have already re-booked.
