Art Curator’s Talk – Wed 18 Jan 2017

YORK ART GALLERY - York Art Gallery is near to completing an £8 million redevelopment, including the creation of a new gallery - The Centre of Ceramic Art (CoCA) - which will be housed in two new spaces created within the previously overlooked, unused and original Victorian Roof Void making up an additional 450 sq m of exhibition space. The redevelopment which has taken over two years, has grown the size of exhibition space by 60 per cent, and allowed the creation of three new exhibition spaces... including The Centre of Ceramic Art, and will allow the CoCA gallery to display over 2,000 ceramic works of its 5,500 plus collection - the largest collection of British Studio Ceramics in the world. The CoCA will include the collections of The Very Rev Dean Milner-White, W.A. Ismay, Henry Rothschild and Anthony Shaw, with works by Bernard Leach, William Staite Murray, Michael Cardew, Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and Felicity Aylieff.
The newly redeveloped York Art Gallery will reopen to the public on the 1st August 2015.
