The Dockside Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed has a selection of works by English artist Lindsay Madden, whose work explores childhood and growing up. Working mainly from photographs, she conveys the childhood’s complexities and narratives that continue into adulthood, such as measurement against one’s peers, and objects of affection. A Sunderland University graduate, Lindsay has exhibited in London, Hong Kong, New York, Stockholm and Melbourne. She has said, ‘Children’s body language is universal and timeless and has become the main focus of my work. Extracting the figure from the photographic image and placing it in a more ambiguous context allows the viewer to probe their own memory archives and apply their own narratives’.

The Gallery hosts ever-changing exhibitions of original paintings, prints, cards, plus a range of gift ideas including ceramics and jewellery, and now has a new website in operation, incorporating a new Miniature Gallery, with original miniature paintings by Gallery artists, and 1:12 scale original artworks, curated from across the globe. Their Inspired by Berwick section features paintings inspired by Berwick-upon-Tweed and the rugged Scottish coastline to the north, and Northumberland’s expansive sandy beaches to the south. Through its support for the Own Art finance scheme the Gallery aims to make exciting works collectable and available to all.
