OPENING WEEKEND! We are opening at the Shieldfield Centre on Friday 22 October – come and join us!



NewBridge Gallery Space is currently moving to a new home at The Shieldfield Centre.

The NewBridge Project gallery space supports the production and presentation of new artwork through an artist-led programme of commissions, exhibitions, screenings, performances and events. We encourage artists to make-work on their own terms, supporting ambitious and pioneering work at a grassroots level.

We provide opportunities for regional and national early-career artists at key points in their artistic development. We work with regional, national and international established and mid-career artists to enable them to experiment outside traditional institutions, and create platforms where artists at any stage of their career can exhibit alongside one another, cultivating an environment of experimentation, exchange and collaboration.

Our artist-led programme is delivered in consultation with our members, we work with a rolling committee of NewBridge artists and curators to produce a critically engaged and diverse programme responsive to the social, political and civic environment within which it exists.



NewBridge Project Space was set up at 18 NewBridge St West in 2010, and moved to 16 NewBridge Street West in 2012 where it remained until March 2017 when the building was later demolished.

The final exhibition at its previous location was Moving on Up, Moving on Out, which showcased work by over 80 artists and NewBridge studio members past and present.

NewBridge Gallery Space reopened at our Gateshead Space in October 2017, and exhibited work by over 100 artists since.

We are now in the process of moving our Gallery space to The Shieldfield Centre.
