Very often we visit art exhibitions whereby the work of leading artists or emerging artists are on display. The 'Private Lives: The Artist as Collector' exhibition presents a different experience - the first exhibition which shows personal collections of leading contemporary artists, including Wendy Sharpe & Bernard Ollis, Peter Sharp, Euan Macleod and more. This is a rare opportunity to offer some insight into the minds of the artists - what inspires their collections.

With over 160 works on display, you can see a wide array of paintings, etchings, ceramics and sculptures. The gallery also brings you Sunday afternoons where you can enjoy artists' talks.

Before finishing off, don't miss two Art Deco masterpieces by significant artist Charles Meere (1890-1961) - Atalanta's eclipse and Triptych (Mural Design) - as well as the preliminary sketch Study for Atalanta's eclipse, thanks to the gallery's commitment and effort on conserving these beautiful works.
