Excitement is mounting at New Light as we get ready for the opening on Monday of the inaugural New Light exhibition in London in the Threadneedle Space at the Mall Galleries, London SW1.

Over the course of five days, New Light will be shining a light on the quality of work being produced by artists from the North of England by showcasing some of the most respected living Northern painters and printmakers, together with a selection of the region’s most talented new artists. The six established artists have already made a name for themselves in the art world, featuring in many national and international collections: Norman Ackroyd CBE RA, Mark Demsteader, Emerson Mayes, James Naughton, Anja Percival and Simon Wright. Joining them will be a group of artists we have identified as the North’s rising stars: Diana Armstrong, Chloe Holt, Josie Jenkins, Emma Lloyd, Myles Linley and Genevieve Pennington.

The exhibition will be open daily from 10am-5pm and runs from Monday 15th – Saturday 20th September 2015 with a Private View from 6pm-9pm on Wednesday 17th September when most of the exhibiting artists will be present. If you would like to join us, please contact us on info@newlight.dev
