Thank you to Michael Lyons and Judith LeGrove for their excellent talk yesterday about Michael’s work. We hope everyone who came along enjoyed as much as we did!

Don’t miss out on seeing Machines and Myths, on show here until 11 August.

We’re looking forward to Michael Lyons in conversation with Judith LeGrove at lunchtime today. He will talk about his exhibition of sculptures, drawings and prints currently on show.

On until 11 August, come to see our brilliant exhibition, The Making of an Englishman.

This exhibition seeks to celebrate the life and work of German émigré artist Fred Uhlman (1901-1985) whilst reflecting on universal themes such as identity and migration within the context of one of the most turbulent periods in European and world history.
-
It includes paintings and drawings dating from 1928 to 1971 such as early impressions of life in Paris, drawings executed whilst in internment on the Isle of Man during the Second World War and the later Welsh landscapes for which he became well known as well as previously unseen archive material.
-
A number of items from Uhlman’s 72 piece collection of African sculpture are included in this exhibition, in addition to a larger selection on permanent display at the Hatton.

Check out one of our summer exhibitions ‘Louisa Hodgson: A New Perspective’.

Louisa Hodgson taught at Kings College, now Newcastle University, from 1931 into the 1960s. Specialising in perspective and technical methods, Hodgson was respected for her precise depictions of architectural space.
-
A New Perspective unites the extensive collection of Hodgson’s drawings held by the Hatton Gallery and the @laingartgallery. Many of these works will be on display for the first time.
-
Alongside Hodgson’s drawings, the exhibition will include modern and contemporary works from the Hatton collection that are influenced by the rules of perspective.

Linked with this exhibition are a number tours, talks and workshops. Visit the ‘What’s On’ page on our website to find out more!
