George Shaw at the Baltic

Spent an hour at the Baltic in Gateshead looking in wonder at George Shaw's fabulous exhibition 'The Sly and Unseen Day'. Can't recommend it enough - paintings in Humbrol enamel of landscapes and buildings around the housing estate where Shaw grew up. Shaw talks very engagingly and intelligently about the exhibition here. It's on till mid-May - go and see it if you can.

I saw it today Tony and it certainly is a fine show. Many layered by a genuine British artist reflecting on a Britsh subject in the British tradition. I don`t mean this in any chauvinistic sense but more in the sense that he is part of the continuation of the great landscape, country and urban, traditon of British painitng.
