Details of our events and beneficiaries can be found here in this report on activities in 2023, when we citizen planted  2087 flowers for pollinators, created three new pollinator strips in the Central library, The Bike Garden and Summerhill Park with 1297 participants and 927 volunteer half days, and featured 19 artists.

This virtual gallery is where we are collecting sensational images of kindly donated art works by well established artists, like Patrick Hayman John Kingerlee and Lizzy Rowe and also by new relatively less known artists. These are to be auctioned to raise funds for the PASA charity's work organising festive and educational  citizen planting of insect friendly flowers across the city of Newcastle. You can bid  at any time for these art works. Email with your bid for any of these artworks quoting the artist and name of the artwork. The final auction will be in late spring/summer 2024 after an exhibition in a gallery or public space. If an offer is received that is above the  baseline donation it may be  accepted and reserved before the final auction. The work will still appear in the exhibition before delivery to the donor.

This is the web site built for Lionel by his son John where you can find out more about him.

Like most artists Lionel spent an enormous amount of time appreciating nature. He also produced a lot of art related to the environmental crisis. Here are a few pastels and ceramics of general appeal. He would have appreciated the PASA effort to put art to work for the environment.

Now and Then by Judy Seymore minimum donation £500

I made this painting in response to the 2024 Woodhorn Open Exhibition competition brief. The theme selected by Woodhorn was ‘Northumberland Now’. We were also reminded that this year is the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Ashington Group, whose artists are known as ‘The Pitmen Painters’ and whose collected works are held by Woodhorn Museum. Emotionally, I needed my painting to merge with my climate and environmental activism and I also wanted to pay homage to the Pitmen Painters. I chose two of their paintings that had a special meaning for me – the men setting off to the colliery at break of day – would they return safely? The wind turbines loom in the distance - will we find a solution to our hunger for energy?  Will we come safely home?

The painting is a combination of acrylic and collage. I have a huge collection of bits of photoshopped images taken from paintings I’ve abandoned and it pleased me to re-cycle some of them in making a new painting on this theme. Just as it pleases me greatly for the painting to be in this auction and hopefully contribute to the ongoing work of Planet Action.

Ashley Bayston arrived in Newcastle shortly before Covid. Locked down with only an inspiring view of the river and an off-piste racing pigeon for company, she started drawing again after 20 years.

In 2022 she illustrated a book author Michael Chaplin wrote to raise money for the West End Foodbank. Drawings from the book were exhibited  at City Library, Newcastle , from September 2023-January 2024 and these  pictures were included.

I work in many painting mediums with the landscape as a thread which has run through my work since my student days at Sunderland in the 1980s.  I am drawn to many aspects of the landscape but the sublime beauty of the sea is a familiar subject I often return to, perhaps making a connection with my childhood where home was a fishing village on the Ayrshire coast of Scotland. 

Working directly from the subject where possible creates an energy, dynamism and spontaneity in an ever-changing environment.

I’ve become accustomed to interruptions from curious onlookers enabling me to connect with people who happily share stories of their relationship with my subject.  I currently live and work in Co Durham.
