Hockney to Himid: 60 Years of British Printmaking

Benbecula, 1961-62
Benbecula, 1961-62
13 November – 24 April 2022

See six decades of British art through one versatile medium.

Including works by Edward Bawden, Peter Blake, Tracey Emin, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Chris Ofili, Grayson Perry, Rachel Whiteread, William Scott, amongst others, this extraordinary exhibition features over 100 prints by 90 different artists.

From wood engravings and etchings to lithographs and screenprints, printmaking enabled artists to expand their practice to explore new creative possibilities. Showcasing a wide range of artists, styles and techniques, this exhibition celebrates the extraordinary upsurge of printmaking from the 1960s to now.

Emerging from the post-war period, printmaking underwent a marked elevation in status and transition from specialist medium to one widely adopted by some of the foremost names in contemporary art – including Tracey Emin whose etching Move (2016) will be on show, along with Chris Ofili’s lithograph Afro Harlem Muses (2005). The exhibition will chart how Britain emerged from the postwar years in the early 1960s, navigated the social changes of the 1970s and 1980s, and saw the ascendency of contemporary British art from the 1990s to the present day.

The majority of works featured in the exhibition are drawn from the Golder – Thompson Gift, the result of a unique twenty-year partnership between Pallant House Gallery and collectors Mark Golder and Brian Thompson. Both Thompson and Golder are teachers who have donated over 500 works to Pallant House Gallery for the enjoyment by the broadest possible audience.

Portrait of Northern Ireland Centenary exhibition

White Shapes Entering, 1973
12 October – 4 November 2021

Secretary of State Brandon Lewis has announced a major art exhibition to showcase Northern Ireland’s creative talent as part of the Northern Ireland Office’s Centenary programme. The Portrait of Northern Ireland: Neither an Elegy nor a Manifesto exhibition will feature over 100 artists who have explored perspectives of Northern Ireland’s people and landscapes from the 1920s until the present day.

In addition to established artists such as Paul Henry, William Scott and Turner Prize nominees, the exhibition will shine a light on the work of up-and-coming artists who have recently graduated from Belfast School of Art. As well as nurturing young talent and enhancing local artists’ profiles, it is hoped that the exhibition will provide a boost to the local arts sector as it deals with the impact of Covid 19.

Curated by Shan McAnena, the exhibition is a collaboration between the Northern Ireland Office, the Government Art Collection, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast School of Art as part of the wider cultural programme of the Northern Ireland Centenary. An expert panel of representatives from these organisations and many of the leading Northern Ireland galleries, has ensured that the exhibition features an inclusive and varied range of artwork and exhibits.

Opening Times:

Tuesday – Friday: 11.00am–5.00pm
Saturday: 11.00am–4.00pm

St Ives: Connecting Circles

William Scott, Pale Linear Still Life, 1975
31 July – 31 October 2021

The small Cornish harbour town of St Ives has always attracted artists because of its exceptional light and dramatic surrounding countryside.

But in the mid-20th century, it became more than a seaside retreat. It became a centre for modern art.

Barbara Hepworth and Ben Nicholson moved there at the outbreak of the Second World War. They were later joined by others including William Scott, Patrick Heron, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Terry Frost and Denis Mitchell.

We are sad to hear the news that Sir Alan Bowness has passed away. Sir Alan Bowness gave enormous support to the William Scott Foundation during the preparation of the Catalogue Raisonné, having an in depth knowledge on William Scott.

He had a close relationship with Scott and in 1972, Bowness in collaboration with the artist, organised the major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery, William Scott, Paintings Drawings and Gouaches 1938–1971. The catalogue was written by Bowness and was his second text to appear on the artist. The first, in 1964, a Monograph on William Scott.

It is with great sadness that the William Scott Foundation has lost Trustee Ludovic de Walden “Ludo” on 2 November 2020 after a short battle with COVID-19.

The distinguished classical guitarist Julian Bream died on 14 August. He had a wide range of interests outside music and was renowned for his fine collection of 19th and 20th century British art.  He was a friend of William and Mary Scott and is pictured here having tea with the Scotts at Hallatrow in these photos taken by James Scott in 1958.
