Slow Art Day - Slow Down You Look Too Fast

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. 
Henry David Thoreau

Be part of the worldwide Slow Art Day! Visit Newcastle Art Gallery to look – slowly – at several pieces of selected art on display from the Gallery's collection, before joining a group discussion facilitated by the Newcastle Art Gallery Guides.

Slow Art Day is a global event with a simple mission: help more people discover for themselves the joy of looking at and loving art. Why slow? When people look slowly at a piece of art they make discoveries.  The most important discovery they make is that they can see and experience art without any expertise.
