Gallery talk: ‘The Derbyshire Gift’

3 July @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

July’s Artwork of the Month talk will be given by Peter Gibbard, former Chair and one of our most popular speakers. It will take place in the Burton gallery on Wednesday July 3rd – starting at 1pm.

Peter’s subject is ‘The Derbyshire Gift’. He will tell the story behind the Derbyshire County Council’s gift in 2021 of five paintings – one each by Druie Bowett (in the Monet exhibition), Prunella Clough, Margaret Ellis, Marion Grace Hocken (all in the Burton) and Daphne Fedarb (in the Treasures gallery). This gift is a significant addition of 20th century modernist art to YMT’s permanent collection, made possible with financial support from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.

Members are reminded that entry charges have been re-introduced at the Gallery so do remember to bring your membership card and take advantage of free entry for the Friends.
