Be sure to take your camera with you during your visit to the Baltic Art Centre in Gateshead. As you tour the various exhibitions, talk to the artists, get to know the location and the inspiration behind the work. You will leave feeling more knowledgeable about contemporary art and perhaps even ready to start your own artwork project. Art is not just about experiencing and looking at it, but getting it into your mind, which is often much more difficult. Get your own piece of contemporary art and be inspired.
