Event November 2019

The Art of Collecting

An exhibition from 9-24 November 2019.
Meet the artists: Sunday, 17 November 2019, 4-6pm.

This exhibition at Retford Park is The Art of Collecting. We join the main house event with our own version of this theme, so fitting at the home of the late James Fairfax AC, a great philanthropist and collector of art. Each of us shares with you the artist we would love to collect ourselves – the artist who most influences us, and inspires us to create. 

Our exhibition is once again on the grounds of Retford Park, in the gallery building, the garden, and the round yard. It’s a diverse exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, jewellery, printmaking and more.
