Made in East Cleveland

By published 14 May, 2013 No Comments

In the heart of Redcar’s new Palace Hub on the seafront, is an exclusive showroom called “Northern Lights.” The name derives partly from the Aurora Borealis, which is near enough to be the cause of the slight green tinge we often seen in our skies, and partly from work by local photographer Ged Hickey.

Local photographer Ged Hickey, who currently exhibits in “Northern Lights”, recently completed a series of photographs where millions of lights are reflected in water. Ged names this series of photographs Northern Lights.

The late Victorian artist and craftsman William Morris believed that everything in one’s home should be either beautiful or useful, and if you subscribe to this view, you would benefit from a visit to Northern Lights. We would add to Morris’ list the word “fascinating” to describe some of the work available in their showroom.

So, if you are bored with imported goods from other countries, and would like to embellish your home with original work made by local professional artists, while at the same time supporting the local economy, then a visit to Northern Lights in Redcar’s new Palace Hub is a must.

Within Northern Lights you will find a range of Photographs, paintings, jewellery, greeting cards, fabulous soywax candles made by Pam Roe and much much more. Prices compare extremely well to anything similar available elsewhere, and some prices are negotiable.

You will receive a warm welcome, and be able to discuss at length any art or craft work you might want to commission. You will also be able to see work being produced in the showroom.

The store is currently manned by volunteers, the artists themselves and Gail Wright the proprietor. Gail is currently doing research to find out what opening times suit customers best, but at the moment, the store is open for part of every day except Mondays and Wednesdays, when the artists are at home creating new works of art. However Gail will even open on closed days by special arrangement.
