The Prints and Drawings Study Room presents its third Showcase Week from 26-30 October 2015, complementing our autumn major exhibition Soaring Flight: Peter Lanyon’s Gliding Paintings and Drawing Gallery display Panorama.
The theme Land to Shore will focus on the ways different artists explore the relationship between land and sea, and the significance of this borderline, as an area of recreation, defense and livelihood.
Each day a selected work will be presented by postgraduate Print Room Assistants in the Prints and Drawings Study Room.
Visitors are invited to drop in to see and hear about the selected work each day of Showcase Week between 1.30 and 5.00pm.
