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.
Celebrating Watt Space's 25th Birthday
11 – 28 September
2014 celebrates Watt Space, The University of Newcastle Students' Art Gallery, 25th anniversary. Our major event to commemorate this milestone is a curated exhibition of works by artists who showed at the Gallery as students and now have national and international reputations.
A catalogue has been produced by designer Warren Taylor to promote the exhibition and it includes essays by some of the key players over the years, and also biographies of ex-exhibitors who are now art administrators rather than art makers - though some still do both.
