Featured exhibition: AFTER FIVE Fashion from the Darnell Collection
AFTER FIVE Fashion from the Darnell Collection is a major exhibition of fashion presenting over thirty garments and accessories from around the world by iconic designers including Christian Dior, Mary Quant, Oscar de la Renta, Bruce Oldfield, Adolpho, Emilio Pucci, Emanuel Ungaro, Christopher Essex, and Franco Moschino. To support this exhibition, Newcastle has created its own miniature fashion world. There is a kids' art activity with paper dolls, and a 'magazine cover' wall. Strike a pose in front of the magazine cover, snap a photo, and post it to Instagram with the tag #newcastleartgallery for your chance to win a prize.
