After an introduction to owner Kate Hodgkinson by Beth at Abundant Earth near Durham, Earnest Bar and Gallery will be the location of a north east focused Unlikely Heroes exhibition opening 30th November and running through December 2017.
Earnest is in the rapidly developing Ouseburn area of Newcastle, just a short walk from the city centre. Its an exciting location to be hanging an exhibition as a busy, vibrant bar and cafe. Kate, the owner, is an artist herself working with glass and also currently runs the nearby Cobalt Studios, home of several highly respected artists of various media from the Newcastle area.
The exhibition will provide a great opportunity to focus on the growers and farmers of the north east. I ranked the area highly for the level and commitment shown by everyone – quite easily comparable to the somewhat more exalted Dorset and Somerset areas. All things being equal, most if not all the NE farmers and growers featured on Feeding Body and Soul will be there on opening night. Do get a date to visit, preferably opening night, in your diary.
