Sarah Pickstone: The Rehearsal
18 April to 5 July 2015
Pickstone has been inspired to make new paintings by a drawing in our collection: Dame Laura Knight’s Ready for Rehearsal. The Mercer has acquired a group of works by London artist Sarah Pickstone on the theme of women writers, a gift made possible by the Contemporary Art Society with the help of Friends of the Mercer Art Gallery.
A new book Writing About Art: Literary Connections in the Harrogate Fine Art Collection by Lara Goodband and John Wedgwood Clarke is launched with this exhibition. it includes an interview with Sarah Pickstone and an essay by A. S. byatt on Patrick Heron’s painting Very soft yellows and formal reds, April 1968, also in our collection. The book will be available from the Mercer Art Gallery shop for £9.95 or by mail order plus £5 p&p.
