Two Photography Exhibitions in Newcastle

At Northumbria University's University Gallery there is a ''last chance to see'' Jane Bown's superb photographic portraits of artists, musicians, writers and others. The exhibition includes a double portrait of George Melly and Maggi Hambling (on another occasion Melly sat for a portrait by Hambling) and portraits of others with, in some cases, a tangenial link to the jazz world such as Woody Allen, Philip Larkin and Spike Lee.
The show runs until Saturday 19th February.
Down the road at the Laing Art Gallery (until Sunday 18th April) is ''Beatles to Bowie: the 60s exposed''. As the title suggests, the exhibition, drawn fron the National Portrait Gallery's collection, is largely devoted to the pop stars of the time. There is some jazz interest in the form of a double portrait of Johnny Dankworth and Cleo Laine, Georgie Fame outside of the Flamingo and a group portrait of the abstemious Temperance Seven.

I called into the National Portrait Gallery to see the Beetles Bowie exhibiton last time I was in London only to find it was about 12 quid to get in so I didn't bother.
Now I find it is in Newcastle and it's free!
Newcastle does have its advantages...
