The Laing art gallery was in the 90’s considered by many to be the primary art gallery within the North East of England. Consequently showing his watercolours alongside some of the finest watercolour paintings in Britain was a considerable early boost to Jason’s career. The Laing art gallery has work by some of the great names of watercolour. Cotman, Girtin, Turner, to name but a few.
His exhibition was held in the watercolour rooms with one section of wall exhibiting works in progress showing the development of his paintings created over the twelve weeks of demonstrations he provided weekly for the visitors to the gallery.
