An exhibition has opened celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Angel of The North.
The iconic Gateshead statue, designed by Anthony Gormley, was completed in February 1998.
Artwork, photographs and writing inspired by the angel - and completed by local people - have gone on display at St Mary's Heritage Centre to mark the occasion.
The exhibition ends on Sunday - watch a preview below.

It is a very special week for North East landmark and treasure, the Angel of the North, which is set to celebrate its 15th birthday.
A rare prototype model by artist Anthony Gormley will go on display in Gateshead to mark the occasion.
The scale version on display has recently been restored by Tyne and Wear Museums.
