Modern British Art

Summer 2021

Last summer’s Modern British exhibition was a significant challenge with the various
lock downs restricting access to the gallery. Like all galleries we did what we could online with presentations and videos and virtual reality shows but we know deep down that our friends and collectors prefer the real thing and it is good news that the gallery is now open again. We have made a number of significant acquisitions since the beginning of 2020, and few of you will have been able to see them until now.

The gallery is open Monday to Friday, if possible do let us know if you would like to visit,
but not essential if you are passing. We are always happy to advise on collections, provide appraisals and general advice. We are not all in the gallery every day so please bear that in mind.
