This retrospective show brings together over 20 original works and prints that wonderfully showcase Alan's much admired and distinctive style. This collection explores Alan's fascination with the everyday and how a sense of place can be captured on canvas.


Alan exhibited work all over the North East in the following twenty years. While his style often changed and evolved, regularly moving between the mediums of watercolour and acrylic, something always remained within his work which made it undoubtedly recognizable as an Alan Smith Page original. This experimentation was rooted in studio 13 of the Biscuit Factory, where Alan would paint daily to please himself. He never painted for an audience, only to push his own creativity and style in new directions. This left an authenticity in Alan’s work, something which can be seen in his legacy today.

Join us in memoriam to celebrate the life and work of beloved local artist Alan Smith Page.
