Its a Wonderful Life...

Its a Wonderful LifeHand Signed Limited Edition of 195
£399 Framed
This years festive image by Paul Horton combines his much loved coastal scenery with a snowy feel. The title of this piece comes from my all time favourite film 'Its a wonderful Life' directed by Frank Capra and staring James Stewart. Although considered a flop back in 1946 the film is now considered to be one of the greatest Christmas films of all time.
Merry Christmas,

Lean on Love Jewellery, the perfect gift for Christmas.

Included in our gifts range is an elegant and sophisticated range of jewellery inspired by the late Govinder’s ‘Lean on Me’ sculpture. The range includes a sterling silver necklace, bracelet and set of cufflinks; all hand crafted in Birmingham’s renowned Jewellery Quarter as well as being specially hallmarked to incorporate Govinder’s very own unique logo. The collection also includes a beautiful metallic silver key ring.

Produced in a limited edition of 995 the jewellery is presented in a chrome box complete with black velvet pouch featuring the artist’s logo; making these the perfect gifts for someone special as well as a stylish way to wear your very own piece of art.

Give the unique gift of art this Christmas and take all of the stress out of your shopping simply by visiting us at Castle Galleries.

Michael Vaughan 'From Crease to Canvas'

Since retiring as captain of the England cricket team Michael has put his batting skills to canvas and combined his two passions in life - cricket and art - to create 'artballing' - an innovative, unusual and exciting form of modern abstract art.
As the most successful ever English captain it's sometimes easy to forget Vaughan the batsman - he was placed as number one in the world batting rankings. 'Vaughan's stroke play was pure artistry,' reported one Sydney Newspaper.
Using his favoured cover drives, square cuts and pull shots Michael expertly hits a paint-covered ball at a blank white canvas to create colour abstract pieces that can be best described as a riotous and colourful mixture of Jackson Pollock meets Damien Hirst. "With my art... it's been good to get away from cricket and switch off those thought processes required to captain at the highest level, the dayin day-out questioning of yourself and the team - the art is quite therapeutic". As well as creating wonderful contemporary abstract pieces he re-creates some of his famous wins in artballing form - such as his Sydney 2003 innings of 183. The commemorative canvas entitled 183, charts every single he scored that day with a 'maroon' shot on the canvas, every two he scored with a 'red', every four in pink, and the sole six in green. This gives his work a unique story telling quality, as it charts the narrative of his cricketing career.
These unique and contemporary abstract pieces are all hand finished and personally hand signed by Michael Vaughan himself - making them a fantastic addition to any contemporary home as well as a highly collectable piece of art.

Hand Embelished Box Canvas (edition of 195) 30" x 45" £599

Alexander Millar Vs Jeff Rowland

From 1-4pm on Saturday the 19th of September the gallery came to a stand-still in awe of the creative talents of Alexander Millar & Jeff Rowland.

In honour of the first birthday of Castle Galleries, Newcastle the pair painted live in the gallery on a collaborative piece. The banter between the two entertained the crowd as the work of art came to life and proved a great success with collectors of each artist's work.

It has now to be decided if the piece will go to print but one thing is for sure, the juxtaposition of Millar's cheeky 'Gadgie' with that of Rowland's atmospheric rain created an undeniable and comfortable companionship.
The collection will run for the next week in Castle Galleries before the collaboration will be presented to Washington Green for proofing.
All enquires regarding Alexander Millar & Jeff Rowland originals should be directed to Castle Galleries, Newcastle in the first instance.
