Watt Space Gallery
Watt Space, the University of Newcastle's student art gallery, is an activity of UoN Services, also known as "the U". It is a place of inspiration and experience for our students - a place where they can engage with the community through their art. We welcome the public to visit our exhibitions and opening events and support our emerging student artists.
Watt Space Gallery will be closed from Monday 23 December 2013 and will reopening Wednesday 12 February 2014.
The first round of exhibitions for 2014 will include:
Going Baroque - group painting exhibition.
Works in the exhibition will combine contemporary and traditional techniques, as well as methodologies, cultures and influences and transcribe the Baroque within contemporary visual culture.
Journey (life odyssey) - Kathleen Glover.
Glover's work examines the variety of journeys we make through life, some mundane and others more exotic, but from every passage we have the opportunity to gather knowledge and experiences which enrich and hopefully, enlighten our lives.
Surroundings - Kathryn Camm and Melanie Smith.
This joint exhibition explores ideas of the artist's surroundings through two different perspectives and approaches. The two perspectives come together in a shared space to present to the audience an interesting view of Newcastle.
Simulacra - Breony Delforce.
We seek to wrestle a sense of peace from the seemingly chaotic world around us. The reflection and dissection of our personal reality leads to an understanding of the universal truths which surround us.
Coal River - Dylan Smyth.
Coal River is a visual journey following coal exportation through the Hunter Valley and city of Newcastle, with a particular emphasis on the scale and mechanics of this industry.
