This popular annual event provides a showcase for the talents of students, staff and alumni of the university and an ideal opportunity to buy modestly priced works of art.
Lara Wardle and James Rawlin will jointly give a lecture prior to the preview introducing the work of Harold Gilman and the exhibition they have co-curated for the Djanogly Gallery.
The death of Harold Gilman in 1919 deprived British art of a vital and significant presence. In the last decade of his life his work displayed an increasing engagement with French Post-Impressionist painting and he developed a style quite unlike his erstwhile mentor, Walter Richard Sickert.
In 1910, Walter Sickert famously declared that art should ‘avoid the drawing room and stick to the kitchen’.
