This exhibition at Retford Park was called The Art of Collecting. We joined 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. In this event, each of us shared the artist we would love to collect ourselves – the artist who most influences us, and inspires us to create.
The ARY exhibition was on the grounds of Retford Park, throughout the gallery building, the garden, and the round yard.
