Spring Fling @ Biscuit Factory, Newcastle

Newcastle has been selected as one of three major UK cities (along with Glasgow and London) where Spring Fling is focusing its drive to raise awareness of south west Scotland as a rapidly emerging centre of artistic excellence.
Rachel Brown, Gallery Manager at The Biscuit Factory said: “We are delighted to be supporting Spring Fling by hosting an exhibition of a selection of their artists’ work. As the co-ordinator of the annual Ouseburn Open Studios event here in Newcastle, I recognise the importance of reaching new audiences to engage with our networks of artists craftspeople and designers.  
“The standard of work in the exhibition we are hosting presents a wonderful introduction to people who perhaps have not already heard of or attended Spring Fling and I am sure will result in many more visitors to this fantastic event.”
