In 2021 the Jerwood Collection of Modern and Contemporary British art will travel to The Harley Gallery for a year-long residency and exhibition programme.
It will be the collection’s first-ever residency and will run for a year from 27 March, encompassing four exhibitions.
Each will be led by a different curator and will feature works by renowned 20th-century British artists such as L S Lowry, Barbara Hepworth, Walter Sickert, and Sir Stanley Spencer RA. There will also be works by leading contemporary artists Rose Wylie RA, and Maggi Hambling, among others.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with the Jerwood Collection, a nationally recognised leader in the art world, to bring this significant collection of works to north Nottinghamshire.
We already show historic art from another private collection the Portland Collection, which includes works by Michaelangelo and Sir Anthony Van Dyck. To counterpoint this aristocratic collection of art dating back to the 16th century with not one, but four exhibitions, from this very special private collection will be a great pleasure.
Lisa Gee, Director of The Harley Gallery
