Joe Hush has been exhibiting at Beckstones Gallery for a number of years and quickly built up an enthusiastic following. Born in Northumberland in 1951, Joe Hush drew his inspiration from the surrounding countryside. He is a self-taught artist and has painted for pleasure for most of his life, before turning professional in 1993. Joe Hush paints primarily landscapes when the light interests him, and with a good eye for detail he tries to capture the atmosphere and his feelings on a particular day. The Lake District is among his favourite subjects. Joe Hush paints in different media but prefers acrylic and oils. He has had a number of exhibitions and his work is in many collections.
If approaching the gallery from Penrith or the M6 heading East on the A66 there is a major diversion in place to the gallery via Motherby. Instead of this we would recommend taking the first turning right to Newbiggin shortly after the Rheged roundabout, follow the road through the village and then turn left as you come out of the village. Follow the road up the hill past the recycling centre and turn right at the bend where you will see our brown tourist board sign, follow the lane and signs to the gallery. Altenatively take B5288 from Penrith to Greystoke turning left left to the gallery less than a quarter of a mile out of Greystoke.
Otherwise please follow the diversion signs on the A66 - they will successfully get you here but it will take 10 minutes longer.
