Welcome back to the York Art Gallery

New art in York

This year’s Yorkshire Day – residents’ celebration of God’s Own Country every 1 August – is set to roll around with even more fanfare than usual, as the prestigious York Art Gallery reopens its doors after a major redevelopment. Set inside a listed Victorian building, the gallery now has lots more space to show off a collection that includes Italian Old Masters and works by 20th century greats like LS Lowry, David Hockney and Sarah Lucas – plus a new Centre of Ceramic Art housing the world’s largest collection of British studio ceramics (more than 5,000 pieces). Set across two floors, and featuring a 17-metre-long ‘rainbow wall’ of pots, the centre will open with a new work by artist Claire Twomey of 10,000 handmade bowls piled in towering columns, whilst elsewhere, exhibits on York and its history draw on everything from ink to taxidermy.
