Beverley Art Gallery and the Treasure House unveil exciting programme for 2020

Beverley Art Gallery and the Treasure House have unveiled a varied and interesting programme for 2020, with exhibitions ranging from local attractions like The Yorkshire Wolds to the delights of Japan.

Highlights of the coming year include:

Reading the Landscape - Photographs and Words Inspired by Walking the Wolds, which opens on 7 March. Photographer Peter Heaton, who lives near York, has been out walking in the Wolds taking black and white photographs which he has then added words to.

From 14 March, 'Journey Into Abstraction' will be a retrospective exhibition of the contemporary British artist John Sprakes, whose career spans over 60 years of painting and shows. His canvases often showed still-life compositions with a sense of mystery, as well as landscapes from all over the UK. John's work was very well received and he exhibited numerous times across the whole country.

From 13 June, Beverley Art Gallery will host the 162nd Royal Photographic Society exhibition, bringing a true richness of new talent from all over the world. Themes include the current environmental situation, unexpected views of  nature, and many intriguing aspects of contemporary society The RPS has provided a platform for the best international contemporary photographers for a number of years and it is a great privilege for Beverley Art Gallery to be able to host such a prestigious exhibition.

Starting on 19 September, 'Reflections of Japan in the East Riding' will be showing items that relate to Japan from across East Riding Museums, with a local collector of Japanese crafts to show their fantastic works. The focus of the exhibition will be to show a collection of 20th century Japanese toys made in the ancient folk way. But it's not all about looking back: the exhibition will bring in a group of Japanese exchange students form Hull University and Ochanomizu University in Japan, who will work on the exhibition. The exhibition has been endorsed by the Japanese embassy and will be made part of the official Japan-UK Season of Culture.

From 19 September there will be Hidden - Cold War Women.  The exhibition is a project with photographer Lee Karen Stow who has been interviewing and taking photographs of women who worked at the Cold War RAF bunker at Holmpton, but also who worked at other bunkers in the area or as part of local council "civil defence" departments.  There are also images of women who were involved in the peace campaign. 

The year will be rounded off, as always, with Open Art from 4 December, and there will be special events connected to all the exhibitions as the year goes on.

Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said: “This is a wonderfully varied programme at Beverley Art Gallery and Treasure House this year, which will appeal to many different audiences, from local photographers to lovers of the Far East! Congratulations to the team at the Art Gallery for putting all this together, and I look forward to another big year at this popular venue.”
