Art and Yorkshire: From Turner to Hockney
Art and Yorkshire: From Turner to Hockney celebrates the county of Yorkshire and its people through the art it has inspired and the artists it has produced.

Over 100 paintings, photographs and sculptures highlight Yorkshire's influence on some of the finest artists the world has seen. From J M W Turner’s familiar landscapes to Atkinson Grimshaw’s moonlit Victorian streets, and rarely seen work by Bradford-born David Hockney; this exhibition places past masters and contemporary artists together in a new context to send a picture postcard of Yorkshire to the world.

The beauty of Yorkshire’s landscape reportedly moved the great British painter J M W Turner to tears. Indeed, Turner’s tour of the North in 1797 is known to have inspired his artistic creation until the end of his days. Some artists came before Turner but many came after him, and this is the story this exhibition - and the book that accompanies it - has to tell.

Brangwyn's War: Posters of the First World War
Frank Brangwyn was an outstanding poster artist of the First World War. A restored set of his powerful large-scale war posters is on show at the Mercer Art Gallery in Harrogate until January 2015. These images offer both a unique social insight into the propaganda of the period as well as reflecting the artist’s personal concerns.

This is the first time that the posters, all lithographs that have recently been cleaned and restored, have been displayed by Harrogate Arts and Museums. The posters were donated to the gallery by Harrogate artist and printmaker Oliver Pemsel and the exhibition is curated by Brangwyn expert Dr Elizabeth Horner.

Gallery opening times: Tuesday-Saturday 10.00 - 17.00, Sundays 14.00 - 17.00.
