    The New Light Prize exhibition, described as the ‘must see’ exhibition of the North, opens at The Bowes Museum on Saturday 18 November.

    This thought-provoking exhibition features paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings. The artworks, all for sale, range from hyper-real portraits, to gritty urban scenes, abstract paintings, expressive oil landscapes and meticulously drafted drawings. Printmakers include Royal Academicians Anne Desmet RA and Norman Ackroyd RA CBE; Neil Bousfield, whose atmospheric wood engravings capture the essence of the English landscape and Anja Percival whose etchings explore the different ‘moods’ of light. Be intrigued by works such as Justin Coburn’s beautifully executed ‘Dreaming Hare’, Gavin Watson’s slightly surreal ‘Waiting for Dogot’ and Glen Ibbitson’s figurative ‘Human Bridge’.

    In total 72 artists have been selected to take part in this high profile 4th biennial Prize Exhibition which shines a light on Northern art and will then tour to the Huddersfield Art Gallery, Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlisle and the Bankside Gallery, London following the show at The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle.
