HOPED-FOR FUTURE VISITS

ORIENTAL MUSEUM, DURHAM
Our second visit to this excellent museum had been arranged for March but had to be cancelled. We plan to reinstate it as soon as we can -- our first visit (see below) was one of last year's highlights.

SALTAIRE, SHIPLEY, WEST YORKSHIRE
The model village of Saltaire is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The largest building, Salts Mill, includes an 1853 art gallery with several rooms devoted to works by David Hockney: paintings, drawings, photomontages and stage sets. There is much more to see around Saltaire village and the nearby Leeds & Liverpool Canal.

This first major retrospective exhibition included over 60 of his works, some not shown publicly before. They include drawings, pastels and oil paintings from both public and private collections, forming the most comprehensive collection of his work ever assembled.

MERCER ART GALLERY, HARROGATE -- 12 February
The Mercer Art Gallery was the final destination of 'Turner -- Northern Exposure', the extraordinary touring exhibition following in the footsteps of JMW Turner's own tour of the North of England in 1797.

The Gallery also hosted a complimentary exhibition of artworks by acclaimed Yorkshire landscape painters, each showcasing new works created in response to some of the places that inspired Turner on his tour, shown alongside landscape paintings selected from Harrogate's Fine Art Collection.
