Northern Print Gallery

Following a trial reopening of our printmaking studio and the implementation of stringent safety measures in response to the ongoing Covid-19 situation we are pleased to be able to announce the reopening of Northern Print's gallery from Wed 2 Sept when we will be resuming our Glossary of Etching exhibition which will be showing until Sat 12 September.  The exhibition features etchings created especially for this show by Oliver Hoffmeister, Eunice Routledge and Bronwen Sleigh as well as work by a host of other artists.

Opening Times

We expect that gallery opening hours for this exhibition will be 12-4pm Wed-Sat.

Please note that all opening times may be subject to change owing to the constantly shifting situation. If you are making a special visit it may be worth calling is on 0191 2617000 ahead of your trip to confirm that we will be open when you arrive.

Although we will continue to try to maintain regular opening times they may necessarily alter owing to circumstances beyond our control - please keep checking our website and social media accounts for updates.

Safety Measures

We are adhering to measures that apply to retail outlets:

  • Please wear a face covering at all times during your gallery visit unless you are exempt from doing so according to government guidelines.
  • Please sanitise your hands on entry.
  • Please keep a 2m distance between you and other visitors and members of staff.
  • Please remember to 'catch, kill and bin' any sneezes or coughs to minimise the chances of airbourne viral transmission.

We will be limiting the amount of visitors that we allow in the gallery at one time and may ask you to wait for a short time outside.

We may ask for your details for NHS Test and Trace purposes.

We are keeping to a regular schedule of cleaning surfaces at Northern Print several times a day.

Above all, we are trying to keep visitors, studio members and visitors safe during this unprecedented time and your patience and assistance in helping us to do so is very much appreciated.
