Exhibition of ‘hidden gems’ from City Art Centre’s collection of fine art; celebrating the unsung and the unusual.
About Hidden Gems
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The City Art Centre’s fine art collection numbers over 4,800 items. Some ‘old favourites’ in the collection are exhibited often, but others have rarely ever been seen by the public. Some of these are stand-alone artworks that do not fit easily into thematic or chronological displays. Others represent unfamiliar periods in artists’ careers, or are by artists who were successful in their day but are now virtually forgotten. Some artworks have simply never had a chance to shine.
Hidden Gems focuses on these lesser-known treasures, celebrating the unsung and the unusual. The exhibition reveals artworks in a variety of media dating from the 18th century to present day. Among the featured artists are Joshua Reynolds, Lucien Pissarro, Jessie M. King, Man Ray, Cecile Walton, Frank Auerbach and Louise Hopkins. Several new acquisitions to the collection are also showcased for the first time, including work by Morris Grassie, Anthony Hatwell and Nicol Laidlaw.
