The Laing

The Laing Art Gallery re-opens to the public on August 10, 2020 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.

As Coronavirus pandemic lockdown closures are eased galleries begin to re-open around the country as they try and re-start their businesses.

The Laing Art Gallery opened in 1901 after funds to build the gallery were provided by Alexander Laing, a Newcastle businessman who had made his money from his wine and spirit shop and beer bottling business.

The gallery today is home to an internationally important collection of art, focusing on British oil paintings, watercolours, ceramics, silver and glassware.
