PREVIEW: Castle Fine Art Gallery
By Nicola Owen on July 26, 2012 in Art & Design
If you’re all Wigginsed out after the Tour de France and need some quiet time to reflect on your spiritual progress during the Olympic brouhaha about to maul us you might want to channel your inner Charlotte York and take refuge in a new art gallery opening on Grey Street, Newcastle on Saturday 28th July.

Castle Fine Art promises to host and develop the best North East artists as well as bringing work by Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood and, a little worryingly, fine art forger John Myatt to the region. Don’t worry though, there’ll be in house experts on hand to advise.
Sarah Manghan, Manager of Castle Fine Art said:
“I’m incredibly excited to be heading up this new gallery and believe there is no better location for it than Grey Street, which has received the accolade of being voted the best street in Britain, so we’ll have fine art on the finest street! The gallery is based on one of the most cosmopolitan and busiest streets in the city, with its wealth of high profile restaurants and bars. Castle Fine Art is aiming to offer the discerning visitor to the city, and our already loyal customers, something that is not currently on offer in terms of art in the region.”
Only the second Castle Fine Art Gallery to open outside Birmingham it has a prestigious history to live up to. The original space hosted showcases by the likes of Lowry, Dali and Picasso and there are sure to be more legends to come. The Gallery’s portfolio will be split between master graphics, original art, signed limited edition art and sculpture.
