People who have saved this event:



As part of the Lindisfarne Gospels regional programme, Scottish painter Ramsay Gibb tracks down the sacred sites and ancient pathways in old Northumbria from Lindisfarne to St Herberts Isle. Ramsay Gibb is renowned for his paintings recording journeys across the British Isles in search of ancient pilgrim roads leading to sacred sites, and for The Pilgrim Coast he has been walking two of the principal routes associated with St. Cuthbert in his many travels across tidal sands, mountain strongholds, islands and hermitages. Encompassing the wider region of old Northumbria reaching from north of the Humber as far as the Firth of Forth and westwards across to Morecambe Bay, Gibb has immersed himself in the turbulent history of this land of kings, saints and pilgrims to portray its unique and still largely unspoiled character. The exhibition is in two parts at The Granary Gallery in Berwick and also Woodhorn Museum, Ashington between Saturday 13 July and Sunday 8 September. The exhibition is in association with The Francis Kyle Gallery, London with support from Northumberland County Council.
