Coming Events

'The Great Yorkshire Art Exhibition' - special Millennium show at Scarborough
2 August - 11 November

  Edna Lumb's work is represented at this major art exhibition organised by the Scarborough Art Gallery this Autumn. It is the most important art exhibition in the North this year and is a celebration of Yorkshire art of the past 150 years - a period that encompasses the lives of some of our best loved artists. This prompts consideration of why the region has produced so many major figures, including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Atkinson Grimshaw and Patrick Heron among others apart from Lumb. About 50 artists will be represented.
  Though Edna Lumb's work far transcends the strictly regional, she would be pleased that her majestic Giggleswick lime quarry is rubbing shoulders as it were with a Moore or Hepworth sculpture or an Atkinson Grimshaw 'night-piece' - all artists she particularly admired. Moore and Hepworth both trained at Leeds College of Art as she did (but later).
  The exhibition is accompanied by a full colour catalogue of every exhibit with notes on individual artists.
