I made the executive decision a couple of years ago that an appropriate showcase and relevant outlet for my mosaic art work would be in galleries – not stuffy arty ones but ones that had a good range of mid to high price unique and lovingly made art and craft – the types of galleries I like to visit and I often buy from. Galleries where you often get to meet the artist and can share in their inspiration and passion for their work.
I am delighted that 2017 has given me a New Year and a New Gallery. Not only is TOWER HOUSE GALLERY a new venue for me, it is a brand new Gallery that opened at the end of last year.
TOWER HOUSE GALLERY is based in the picturesque harbour village of Seaton Sluice in Northumberland. This delightful octagonal shaped building is Grade 2 listed. designed by Sir John Vanburgh and built around 1720, it has been the Harbour Masters House, a public reading room and more recently a private residence.
The building is now privately owned and has now been transformed into a Gallery. It is being run by Proprietor and Resident Artist: Rose Di Mascio. Her stunning watercolour and acrylic artwork is on display and is inspired by nature with a surrealist and mythological twist. You can see more of Rose’s work on her website and you can also read more about the history of the Gallery on the website as well as following it on Facebook.
The octagonal shape of the Tower provides a perfect display area and is ideal for showcasing local artwork. I am delighted to be part of this exciting new venture and hope that a lot of people will not only discover this lovely gallery with beautiful artwork, but also the joys of the Northumberland coastline as well.
