South Shields Sand Dancer Painting

Painting of a Sand dancer on little haven beach near the Groyne at the mouth of the Tyne in South Shields

A recent post on Facebook, about the sale of a painting which features a Tyneside sand dancer and his dog, on little haven beach in view of the iconic Groyne lighthouse in South Shields, has got us thinking about adding a new feature to our Geordie art & culture section.

The new section will feature paintings and/or links to paintings by local artists, whether they are for sale or not :).

Thanks for introducing us to your painting Julie Stubbs and hopefully you will soon add to our planned new section.

In the meantime if you are a local Geordie artist and would like to have your own painting featured in our planned new Geordie paintings section, please make contact and we will soon make it happen.

Watch this space for updates 🙂

    I am the artist of the sand dancer paintings, i heard about you adding a new feature to you’re Geordie art & culture section. I am very much interested in being part of this, i am a local artist from South Shields. I only have my originals and prints on facebook (sanddancerart) although i do sell through a few galleries. Im hoping you and you’re new section will help me personally get my new selection of paintings viewed on a bigger scale from my facebook of the local people and landmarks.

    Thanks, ill look forward to you’re response.

    Anthony Caine.

      Cheers Anthony, I intend a bit of a revamp/extra sections in the early part of the new year, so I will definitely look forward to getting in touch asap in 2016 ! In the mean time I have made it clear how people can get to your excellent Facebook page (Just click on the link in Anthony’s comment) 🙂
