After the great success of last year’s launch, Art in Yorkshire is back. We will see the launch of the programme at the Gordon Baldwin, Objects for a Landscape, exhibition at York Art Gallery on Monday May 14. Focusing on contemporary modern art the exhibitions will include some art’s most iconic names, such as Andy Warhol, Joan Mio, Sarah Lucas and Fiona Rae.
Art in Yorkshire opens up the exploring of galleries to many new audiences and with this being the second year that the project is taking flight, it is hoped to reflect last year’s large number of visitors. With the theme of modern art being chosen due to Yorkshire’s long artistic tradition and the strong part that in plays in the development of Modernism in the UK.
Exhibitions will be on display across 27 galleries throughout the whole of Yorkshire, from York to Leeds to Sheffield, making it something to visit wherever you are from. Also don’t be fooled into thinking art is merely just paintings; Art in Yorkshire offers a wide range of displays from sculptures to ceramics to self-portraits.
If this sounds interesting to you then there will soon be much more information available. From the launch a variety of different sources of information will be available. A booklet which outlines all of the exhibitions will be available at all the galleries. Also an updated version of last year’s App will be released shortly after, and if more information is needed a website (here), will be going live from the launch.
