  • Personally I enjoyed looking at the different pieces of art however just having one random artist change every so often isn't enough. I was working with an autistic boy the day I visited. The staff doing the work shop were good and accommodating keeping the children interested but one in particular was quite rude around the gallery to me and another member of staff I was with. He told us to get our things of the exhibits and not to touch them (bluntely) when the things that were on the exhibit belonged to the lady doing the workshop.
  • Perhaps he best thing about the Laing is actually it's size as you don't feel jaded by the time you've seen little more than a small fraction of the exhibits, yet there's still enough here to interest most people and indeed some of the works are truly stunning. The cafĂ© is also a very nice place to meet up for a cup of coffee or bite to eat, and where you know you'll not have trouble finding a table or fight your way through crowds of people. Overall a perfect place to while away a few hours.
  • Varied collection of exhibits and in a central location. Cafe has plenty space and shop has some interesting and different stuff. Free to enter.
  • Some lovely paintings particularly pre- raphelites but that's just my opinion. Did not like the Paul Nash exhibition too depressing pictures seemed to lack something color? Life?
  • Love the Laing personally. Plenty history here and an interesti g range of changing exhibitions. I went to a virtual reality experience here 20 years ago and a new one last week. Both were great. Lots of classical pictures and history of the north east. Long may the Laing continue!
