The works in this exhibition include the well known alongside new discoveries. Works by established early artists, Robert Dale, Thomas Turner, Frederick Garling, James W R Linton, A B Webb and Kathleen O’Connor, as well as those by more recent artists such as Herbert McClintock, Harold Vike, Elise Blumann, Guy Grey-Smith, Robert Juniper, Howard Taylor, Brian Blanchflower, James Angus and Rodney Glick, will be shown, alongside significant works by many less familiar names.
It’s going to run from 8 July 2011 to 1 April 2012.
