Join us on Saturday, March 11 for a private morning view of the exhibitions Tony Cragg: A Rare Category of Objects and Anne Purkiss: Sculptors at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
The morning starts with a light breakfast on arrival, a welcome by senior curator Helen Pheby and a short introduction to the work of the two artists.
Following the introduction guests will have time to view the works of Tony Cragg before the exhibition opens to the public. The most expansive UK exhibition by the leading sculptor includes new sculptures, drawings and works drawn from nearly five decades of Cragg's practice.
From 9.45am guests will also have the opportunity to view Anne Purkiss: Sculptors, followed by a walking tour to see works by artists featured in the exhibition. This exhibition presents a collection of Purkiss' portrait photographs of sculptors, all of whom have exhibited at Yorkshire Sculpture Park over the last 40 years.
Following the private view guests can continue to explore Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Tickets include free all-day parking.
Please note, the walking tour will be on foot, as a result, disabled access will be limited.
