Gallery talk: Artwork of the Month March 2020
16 March @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am
ARTWORK OF THE MONTH : This talk will be given in the Gallery on Wednesday 16 March at 10 am by this year’s MA bursary student, Rhyann Arthur.
Rhyann’s talk will navigate through a selection of ceramic artworks recently acquired from the collection of Pat Barnes. Specifically, it will explore some of the pieces by Carol McNicoll, a significant potter of the so-called New Ceramics group that arose in the 1970s, featuring the likes of Alison Britton and Elizabeth Fritsch. Until now, McNicoll’s work has not been represented in York Art Gallery’s collection, and as CoCA is installing the upcoming ‘Wall of Women’ McNicoll’s interdisciplinary approach to clay will give an insightful view into the world of modern era women ceramicists, from studio pottery through to contemporary ceramic art.
Friends will be able to enter the Gallery without pre-booking, but please remember to bring your membership card. Seats and audio loop will be available. We will be expected to depart promptly by 11 am. Those wishing to stay on will need to have previously booked to do so.
