Tyne & Tide: John Peace

This November a major exhibition of the art works of the late John Peace, a leading artist in the North East, will open at South Shields Museum & Art Gallery. 

This exhibition, the first since Peace died in 2017, brings together a significant selection of some of his finest work. 

It focuses on landscapes, many depicting the region's coast and rivers, as well as the area around Lemington, where he spent most of his life, and includes paintings of South Tyneside and Sunderland. 

Landscape was Peace's main interest, but he also produced many paintings of other subjects and a section of the gallery will present examples of his portraits, still lifes and scenes of family life. 

Tyne & Tide provides a unique opportunity to see many of his best paintings, including those owned by the artist's family, alongside a number of loans from private collectors. 

More information on John Peace and images of his paintings can be found at: 

Open during normal gallery opening hours. Running until 17 May 2022.

Donations welcome, free entry.
