Select: St Ives
York Art Gallery
2 May – 27 September 2009
The exhibition was chosen by the Curators at York to complement their existing holdings by artists from this group. York Art Gallery already has a substantial collection of Bernard Leach pottery, who worked with many of the St Ives artists, and the exhibition coincided with the opening of the new pottery gallery at York.
This Select exhibition focused on the group of artists famously associated with St Ives, such as Nicholson, Hepworth and Gabo, at the same time exploring the work of painters active in the area in the 1960s and 1970s - Patrick Heron, Terry Frost and Roger Hilton.
