Local artists are Brilliant

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

LUMIERE will include four pieces created by artists from the North East as part of Brilliant, an initiative funded by the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative and Northern Rock. The successful four projects were chosen from over sixty proposals and include works by local artists Bethan Maddocks and Verity Quinn who are working with former mining communities to recreate traditional pit banners using fibre-optic thread; local builder Mick Stephenson; Dan Ziglam and Elliot Brook of product design agency, Deadgood; and The Global Curiosity Group, a collective led by lecturer Paul Goodfellow, based at Northumbria University.
