Words from Eileen Downs:
"The first Lockdown was a difficult time adjustment for us all, not being able to see our families, and grandchildren. My print depicts my positive thought of picking apples with my grandchildren in their garden during the previous summer. My grandchildren pointed to apple’s that where too high in the tree to reach, so we shook the tree with all our might and the apples tumbled to the ground, they then picked up an apple and took a huge bite - yum. My granddaughter now refers to the tree as Grannies Apple Tree. The thought of picking apples with my grandchildren was very motivational during lockdown and thankfully something we all achieved this Autumn.
This print was originally for my grandchildren and below is a short verse I wrote to go with it
Grannie's Apple Tree 2020
High in the apple tree out of reach, are apples so rosy and round
So, Grannie shakes the tree with all her might.
They then pick an apple from the ground and take a big bite."

Thinking of buying an original print priced at £100 or above*?
We are members of Own Art, a national scheme funded by Arts Council England that makes it easy and affordable for everyone to buy contemporary art.
Own Art allows you to spread the cost of a purchase of an original artwork over 10 months with an interest free loan. With so many works of art to choose from, you could start a collection of your own today from as little as £10 per month.
To help explain the scheme, here are our answers to some frequently asked questions:
What can I buy?
Own Art loans are available in our gallery for the purchase of contemporary art and craft by living artists. That means you can choose more or less anything you want from paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture, to glassware, ceramics, jewellery and textiles.
How much can I borrow?
Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,500 for the purchase of works of art by living artists.
How do I apply?
After you've found something in our gallery or online that you love, speak with a member of staff who can talk you through your options on 0191 2617000. You are able to pay a deposit with Own Art to lower your monthly costs although this is not necessary and the loan can cover framing if you wish. The best option is to visit the gallery if you would like to proceed with an Own Art application where a member of our team will take you through the loan application process. You will need to bring proof of ID, address and signature - a driving licence is ideal or a utility bill and credit or debit card. The application process usually takes 10-15 mins following which you'll get an instant decision so you can take the work home on the same day.
