Show map


Described by many visitors as their favourite show of the year, in 2019 ‘Pocket Edition’ sees 31 artists, from emerging to established, each display up to 10 postcard-sized original artworks on Hahnemühle paper provided by the gallery.

Variously painted or drawn in oil, acrylic, pastel, pencil, gouache, watercolour and ink, the style and subject matter is equally varied, from landscape, cityscape, still life and portrait to studies of nature, abstract works, and those that defy easy categorisation.

The unframed works are sold on a cash and carry basis or can be left with the gallery to arrange framing at a small fee.

A stencilled photocopy replaces the sold pieces so that each series and the overall show remains intact over the period it is in the gallery.

An individual illustrated brochure on each artist provides background and context.

The full list of participating artists, several of them new to Northart, can be seen on the website.
