Harley Gallery, Welbeck Estate, near Worksop, August 20 and November 7.
The gallery will take visitors on a visual journey of British coastlines, countryside and city with an exhibition that explores the year of the staycation.The free exhibition is called Coast, Country, City and it promises a change of scenery and a variety of destinations seen through the work created by British landscape artists.Coast, Country, City includes artists such as David Hockney and Edward Bawden, Catherine Yass and Paul Nash, among many more.More than 50 works from the Jerwood Collection have been selected by independent curator James Rawlin.Lisa Gee, director of The Harley Gallery, said: “The enforced solitude of lockdown has been very difficult for so many of us.“This exhibition of artists’ views of England makes me realise quite how much we have missed.”
She added: “Many of these paintings were done a long time ago and it’s interesting to look at them now in 2021. What do we all expect of our beaches, coasts and city pubs? Are our memories of things long gone or places that still exist?”For more, see www.harleygallery.co.uk
