Arthive has now closed. Thanks for your support!



THRIVE - curated by Anthony Ferris

THRIVE has a dual motive. One, it is the official launch of the arthive collective, Arthive gallery and a studio hub for arthivers. Two, it is due time to pay respect to some of Newcastle’s finest artists. The exhibition showcases artists’ works throughout the entire building, or hive as we like to call it, so the audience will be completely surrounded and engulfed by art and its antics. For a busy and productive hive to succeed, we need to embrace all artists, to create an art space that feels open and accessible to the art world and the public in general. This exhibition utilises many different groups, styles and subcultures that work in Newcastle to bring them together in a hive of activity.The studio Artists gain access to their gallery for the first time to exhibit, whilst allowing outside artists to create works in the corridors, walls, stairs and outside areas. The exhibition will provide live music over the entire opening, breaking for the art auction that will help fund the Arthive collective’s future projects.
