Winifred Nicholson: Liberation of Colour

  • 24 June — 16 September 2017 *on now

We are lucky to be the only South West venue for this major touring show, co-curated by the artist's grandson Jovan Nicolson.

The exhibition examines the key creative periods of this significant British artist with a particular emphasis on the way she treated light and colour.

It brings together an important selection of works created throughout her career, including her visit to Pill creek on the Fal, and features landscapes, still life, portraits, experiments with abstraction and the previously unseen prismatic pictures.
