'Return of the Painter' is an ongoing exhibition which refocuses as a gallery on the genre we like best: Contemporary Painting. The time for Performances, Installations, and noisy Slogans will come again, but for now, at this moment in a fragmented world, it is the light on the horizon expertly painted by internationally established artists that take centre stage. Gallery director Ails McGee has returned to the easel and has produced a new collection. She is joined by Freya Horsley, David Baumforth, Julia Poulton, Georgie Britton, and contemporary cityscape artist Richard Barnes.
The rumours of Painting's demise have been greatly exaggerated.
'Return of the Painter' will welcome art from Amrik Varkalis, Emily Powell, and Beth Ross in September 2020.
