Sky Arts Channel were in town today to film another episode of the popular series, 'Landscape Artist of the Year'. They were based at the Gateshead side of the Quay, so I popped along to see what was happening.
I got to see Joan Bakewell, but sadly missed Stephen Langman.
There are various artists who partake on the show and eventually there will be one winner named as the title of the programme. A fair amount of money is at stake and a massive career jump I should think.
They also invited 50 local artists and one of those will get picked to join the show.
Here are a few snaps of the event
