The Biscuit Factory is an independent art gallery, founded in 2002 and located in the cultural quarter of Newcastle, Ouseburn. A former Victorian biscuit manufacturing warehouse, a number of artist studios were also developed on the lower 2 floors of the building housing 25 creative work spaces.
The ethos of the gallery has always been to provide a platform for local and national artists, to support emergent makers, to showcase established artists and to add to the cultural landscape of the region. The huge scale of the gallery means that we are able to display the work of over 250 artists at any time, with a team of Curators hand selecting work across a vast range of mediums. We exhibit and sell original paintings, handmade prints, glass, ceramics, textiles, photography, furniture, design led homewares and jewellery. Receiving over 50,000 visitors a year our focus is on making art accessible and creating a genuine marketplace for artists and makers.
We represent the work of emerging and mid career artists and feature collaborative exhibitions with national agencies, arts organisations and initiatives such as International Print Biennale, Craft Scotland and National Glass Centre.
Their own charity is The Biscuit Factory Foundation; which aims to nurture and develop the careers of emerging artists.
Free Admission: Open 7 days a week
