Preview of 'Auld Hands' exhibition by artist Graham Hodgson

An opportunity to 'meet the artist' with a mystery special guest.

This collection reflects Graham's recent journey of discovery into the rich industrial heritage of the North East. 'Auld Hands' is an exploration and celebration of shipbuilding and the hard-working people associated with it. The imagery is rich and evocative with just a hint of romanticism. Attention to detail and authenticity is tempered with minimal artistic licence to bring this era to life.
