2014 marks the 40 year anniversary for Cooks Hill Galleries, Newcastle's premier commercial gallery.
With four gallery rooms featuring established, mid-career and emerging artists, there is a surprising variety of works on display by exhibition and for sale.
The space regularly hosts exhibitions of course, but also sees book launches and fundraising events within the art-laden walls.
If you're a visitor to Newcastle and want the chance to view pieces by some of Australia's best-loved artists, including Sydney Nolan, Brett Whitely, John Olsen, Margaret Olley, Norman Lindsay, Pro Hart and more, a stop at Cooks Hill Galleries is a must.
While you're soaking up the stunning works, be sure to cast an eye over the steadily growing range of works from emerging local Newcastle and Australian artists.
If you're a local art enthusiast, you might be interested in establishing your own private collection and need advice and guidance; Cooks Hill Galleries' Mark Widdup can help there.
The Gallery offers a range of art-related services, including valuations, corporate art advice and management, restoration and framing advice and support, and an appraisal service.
Supported by a comprehensive social media platform, following Cooks Hill Galleries means you'll always be up to date with art news across the region, Australia, and abroad. The blog at artaffair.com.au is a wealth of insight into the art world.
Visit the gallery in person and mark the spot, because you'll definitely want to come back again.
