The Baltic Gallery for Contemporary Art, also known as Baltic gallery art, is renowned for its exhibition of contemporary art by international artists. Situated on the south bank of the River Tyne, it serves as a hub for artistic expression and inspiration.

A Memorable Visit to the Baltic Gallery

On the 10th of November 2023, a Friday, I embarked on a visit to the Baltic Gallery with my friends Sukriti and Sarjak. In this blog post, I will recount the enriching experience of our visit to this esteemed art gallery.

As we made our way to the Baltic Gallery from college, I seized the opportunity to capture moments of beauty along the River Tyne.

Upon entering the gallery, we were greeted with an array of captivating artworks, including exhibits such as Project Art Works: Residential and Michael Rakowitz’s The Waiting Gardens of the North.

Personal Reflections on Baltic Art

Rather than feeling compelled to conform to a specific interpretation of art, I embraced my own unique perspective during my visit to the Baltic Gallery. I recognized the validity of my personal response to the artworks on display, understanding that art can be appreciated in diverse and individual ways.

I remain open-minded and curious, and with time and exposure, I may develop a deeper appreciation for traditional art. But if not, that’s perfectly okay too. My artistic preferences are my own, and I’m comfortable with that.

Cherished Memories of the Baltic Gallery

I cherished the moments spent exploring the Baltic Gallery, reveling in the picturesque views of the River Tyne and the tranquil ambience of the gallery’s river-facing lounge. As an international student, these experiences hold a special place in my memories, encapsulating the essence of my exploration in this vibrant city.

Imagine this: as you head home at the end of the evening, you suddenly hear chanting that resonates with your culture, your roots, and your home. Isn’t that a perfect happy ending?

On my way back, the sound of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” filled the air, and I couldn’t resist joining in. It was a beautiful moment of reconnecting with my heritage, my origins, and my beliefs.

So to conclude…

In summary, as an international student, the simple joys of walking around the city, admiring the River Tyne, and finding solace in places like the Baltic Gallery lounge have become cherished memories.

These peaceful moments of exploration not only connected me to the new place but also allowed me to reconnect with my heritage through experiences like joining in the chant of “Hare Rama Hare Krishna.”

These highlights have left a lasting impression, reminding me of the beauty and sense of belonging that can be found even when far from home.
