Wednesday, 15 August 2018 - Art Appreciation visit to the Mercer Gallery Harrogate 10.45am - Harrogate

At the meeting in November last year we talked about going to visit Manchester Art Gallery. However because of the ongoing disruption on Northern Rail, it might be a better idea to visit the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate. I have arranged for a talk by one of their curators, price £15 between us. The exhbiitions include :
Posy Simmonds - artwork and unseen sketches by renowned illustrator and writer Posy Simmonds. Over 50 works with cartoons, illustrations from her children's books and original drawings from her graphic novels including the popular Tamara Drew and Gemma Bovery.
Another exhibition is Great Yorkshire Art - 50 great paintings from the regions finest artists, past and present. This major summer exhibition puts the best of Harrogate Fine Art collection and Yorkshire's contemporary artists in the spotlight.

Please could you let me know if you are going on this visit, to enable me to confirm the booking of a curator with the Art Gallery.
The nearest car park is Montpellier Shops car park at the Royal Baths. Go t0 this website to find directions
