ABOUT

The RePUBlic Gallery is an art gallery and community space in the center of Blyth, Northumberland.

We are based on the ground floor of the former public house, The Kings Head. We recognise and value the rich history of our building and its social and cultural significance within the town. We are committed to a program of exhibitions that are reactive and champion local engagement. We hope RePUBlic will be a place to inspire and energise creativity.

Alongside The RePUBlic Gallery is The PUBlic Window, our window box gallery, which has for the past year exhibited a new artist every month. The PUBlic Window was our answer to the endless lockdowns and delays to physical exhibitions, it has since become a vital part of our program. We run call-outs for artists to exhibit in the window throughout the year.

As we move into our first year with both the gallery and the window open, we welcome proposals from artists, community groups and business to borrow, hire and fill our gallery with exciting projects. Email: info@republicgallery.co.uk with your ideas.

Our opening exhibition ‘A Place for Sitting’ by Chantal Makar will open Wednesday 1st December 2021.
