Saabat Gallery’s First Private Collection Exhibition

Online exhibition

The Saabat Gallery wants to work beyond the stereotype of private collections formed by royalty, the aristocracy, and the wealthy community.

Our primary purpose of the collection, promote artists work, and expose them to the public, collectors, media, and cultural institutions.

It is the first group of works by local artists gathered by our gallery. Our gallery represents works of art without specific types of art like abstract, contemporary art, or masters of the 20th century.

Every artist integrates into Saabat without taking into consideration the vision, mission, and style.

We are looking for new artwork to enhance our collection.

The nice thing about the show is that without having to pay any money you can just come and enjoy it.

For the right purpose, Saabat welcomes you so do not hesitate to come.

Black Path Press is a community publishing project, producing books with people in South Bank, Middlesbrough; an area surrounding the historical route known as the ‘Black Path’. The publications made will explore subjects big and small, the aim is to make as many different publications as possible between April and July 2019. Together, these books will form a collective document of the area – given out to local libraries, museums and individuals. They will also serve as a research and design tool for a public artwork, led by artists Foundation Press, on the site of the Black Path in Autumn 2019.
