Visit to South Shields Museum and Art Gallery

On March 17th our group visited South Shields Museum and Art Gallery to view the John Peace exhibition ‘Tyne and Tide’.

John Peace lived and worked in Tyneside and painted landscapes depicting the region’s coasts and rivers, as well as scenes of local industry.

Our members, in the main, loved the paintings, both in oils and watercolours, there certainly being something to suit all tastes!

26 members joined us in South Shields and seemed to enjoy, as well as the Art on display, this ‘little gem’ of a museum-and the coffee in the museum’s quaint ‘Victorian Tea Room’.
