WORLD AT WAR - GALLERY ONE,LEVEL ONE GALLERY AND GODFREY PILKINGTON GALLERY
The war to end all wars, is how WW1 was remembered when people looked back on the atrocities of the conflict. 100 years later and we look back using artefacts from the Local Authority Collection and using contemporary art to look at conflict, why it happens and the positives (if there are any) and the negatives of the aftermath. this exhibition is not only interesting but challenging and contemplative offering spaces of reflection.
CONNECTING THE COLLECTIONS - Ground Floor Cases
If a picture can paint a thousand words, how much could one artefact or possession tell you. As we celebrate Heritage Open Days this month we look at items that have connections in weird and wonderful ways - from clogs to bell ringers, and a manuscript to the first park. If you like looking back some of these may surprise you.
IN ISOLATION - MEZZANINE CABINETS
How often do we look at something and think, how was that made? Sometimes we don't see things as they really are because of where they are placed. This collection of 13 pieces of studio glass from the last part of the 20th century gives each piece the chance to stand alone letting the viewer soak up its unique beauty. Pieces exhibited are by David Reekie and Dale Chihully plus many more.
