The University Gallery and Baring Wing at Northumbria University, with its monumental 6.5 metre high bronze sculpture Pillar Man by Nico Widerberg, is one of the City's newest architectural highlights. A dynamic annual programme includes exhibitions by artists of national and international distinction, as well as exhibitions by less-established but promising artists. The permanent collection of mostly 20th century British artists' work includes the largest public collection of paintings by Norman Cornish, one of the region's most distinguished post-war artists.
Opening times: Monday to Thursday 10am – 5pm, Friday – Saturday 10am – 4pm. Closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.
