Beverley Art Gallery recently launched a series of videos called ‘It’s in the BAG – Behind the scenes at Beverley Art Gallery’, presented by the gallery’s curator Helena Cox and showing remarkable paintings from the gallery’s repository.
For the festive season, the gallery is launching another batch of videos, this time presented by Jane Irisa, an East Riding based collector of traditional Japanese toys.
Beverley Art Gallery has launched a new series of lockdown videos, which can be enjoyed whilst the gallery has to remain closed.
Presented by curator Helena Cox, the videos look at some of the paintings and items which visitors can’t normally get to see, and which are kept behind the scenes in the repository in the Treasure House.
The Treasure House, Beverley is proud to launch its newest contemporary art installation by Canadian artist, Ian Kirkpatrick. This commission is part of the East Riding Visual Art Uplift, a commitment to showcasing and integrating contemporary art into the region.
Following an extremely well-received open call for submissions, Ian was selected, thanks to his unique and vibrant style, to bring a contemporary twist to the region in the form of ‘Beverlac’.
Beverley Art Gallery has released a new podcast in the series called ‘It’s in the BAG – a Beverley Art Gallery podcast’.
The first episode in the series was all about Beverley artist Fred Elwell. While the latest edition concerns his wife, Mary Elwell, following the recent online celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Fred’s birth.
Beverley Art Gallery – although still closed at the moment – is marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of local artist Fred Elwell on Monday, 29 June.
The Gallery features the UK’s largest collection of Fred’s work. Elwell’s paintings are a permanent feature of the Edwardian ‘red’ gallery, located in the Treasure House in Beverley. The display is altered every year, with loans from both private and public collections.
Beverley Art Gallery’s new online exhibition called Legacy shows the mixed media artwork of Paul Clifford, a British multi-media artist and academic who has developed his career in the UK and internationally.
Paul’s work is inspired by the First World War memories of his father, who served in Egypt as part of the East Riding Yeomanry regiment.
Beverley Art Gallery has acquired – and put on display – a painting by local artist Fred Elwell, which was purchased by the Friends of Beverley Art Gallery.
The painting is a black and white image, signed and dated 1896. This dates to the time that Elwell lived in Paris where he studied at Academie Julian, an independent school where lots of artists from all over the world studied at that time.
