The Rugby Collection

With loans from Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum

14 April – 3 June 2017

Rugby’s nationally known collection of 20th century and contemporary British art will be showcased in its annual spring exhibition.  The selection includes works by L S Lowry, Paul Nash, A K Dolven, Faye Claridge and a recent acquisition into the collection by Scottish painter William Gear RA. The exhibition also includes works on loan from Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum’s collection, including pieces from Catherine Yass, Marc Quinn, and Tania Kovats.
This year we have a theme of health and wellbeing and artworks have been selected by the team to stir emotions, reaction and discussion with our visitors.  We are interested in how art exhibitions can influence the wellbeing of visitors.
