Words from Janet E Davis:
"My ‘Small Pleasures 1.0’ screen print is in 3 layers of colour: cyan, magenta and yellow. The mug in the print is from a mug for which I drew the design by hand, based on traditional willow pattern china typical of the 19th century (when there were potteries in Ouseburn) and some of the landmarks of the Lower Ouseburn Valley. There’s a steam train going over the Ouseburn Viaduct at the top (from a 19th century JW Carmichael painting of the valley), and the 18th century Crawford’s Bridge can be seen underneath the arches of the 19th century Byker Bridge. The cake in the print is from my favourite patisserie in Ouseburn. I usually share cakes with friends so it not only means a special treat but also reminds me of all the times I’ve spent with friends, even when we can’t be in the same place together. The book was originally published in 1933 (the plate probably dates from around the same time), and is one of the Albert Campion series of detective stories by Margery Allingham which I have enjoyed for years. The title ‘Sweet Danger’ reminds me not to eat cake too often!"

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.
