Clare Woods Exhibition at the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery

This was just passed on to me by Lee Anderson. Perhaps members would be interested in going?

The Hepworth Wakefield has a major exhibition by Clare Woods, exploring her interest in the power and history of rock formations in the British landscape, and its various manifestations in the works of artists such as Hepworth, Moore, Sutherland, Piper and Nash. Her large-scale paintings (approximately 10 metres in length) use layers of enamel paint on aluminium. Some of you will know Clare who now lives in Kington. An edition of lithographic prints is on sale in the Hepworth shop that Clare made on our litho press here at The Rodd. There will also be time to visit the Collection Galleries showing the breadth of Hepworth’s work as well as the context in which she worked, her peers and predecessors (Moore, Epstein, Brancusi). The Hepworth Wakefield is a beautiful new gallery, winner of the 2011 British Design Awards.
