First exhibiting with Brenda May in 1989, Peter Tilley's relationship with the Gallery is enduring. After studying Ceramics (1973-75) and receiving a Certificate of Art (1978-79) from Newcastle School of Art & Design, Tilley completed a Master of Philosophy (Fine Art) at Newcastle University (2008-10) and spent four years working on his PhD at the same institution (2015-18).
