Lowry and the Sea explores the artist’s connection to Berwick and his lifelong fascination with the sea.

Lowry is one of Britain’s most recognisable artists, best known for his industrial scenes of the North-West. However, the sea was a constant presence in his life. During his childhood he enjoyed regular family holidays on the Lancashire coast and later in life he travelled extensively throughout the British Isles, regularly visiting the North-East and its coast.

He first visited Berwick-upon-Tweed in the mid-1930s and continued to visit the town until his death in 1976, drawn by its clear air and views out to the North Sea.

Lowry and the Sea includes works on loan from The Lowry, Salford, The Arts Council Collection, Royal Academy of Arts and several private collections, and is the first curated exhibition of his works in the town for 10 years.

Talks & Guided Tours

During the exhibition period, there will be an opportunity to join us for a range of additional activities, including talks, art workshops and guided tours of the exhibition. See our website for more details.
Booking in advance is advised.

Lowry and the Sea has been made possible with a grant from the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund and The National Lottery Heritage Fund and is supported by Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland.
