  • A fisherman’s tale – talented artist showcases work at Old Low Light unveiling

    Proudly gazing out to sea, a historic masterpiece sits firmly on the North Shields Fish Quay, beginning its life as a lighthouse, the Old Low Light was a beacon of safety to fisherman in days gone by, guiding weary boats full of their fishy bounty into the harbour; having often spent days in the treacherous waters of the unforgiving North Sea. The building has now been pain-stakingly transformed following years of neglect and the re-opening of the Old Low Lights, which houses both modern and traditional art, and requested TyneMet College’s Creative Studios’ HND student and local artist, Michael Smith to exhibit -  ‘Salt Water in the veins’ illustrating the tales of fisherman.
