I love modern art, he loves traditional. Here there were both. We went on the recommendation of a very helpful lady in tourist information, and were not the least bit disappointed. There was little on which we both agreed, but plenty for discussion. A really easy way to spend a pleasant hour.

Artists of Yorkshire was on and why haven't more people (including myself) heard of Atkinson Grimshaw? He has the best name ever and his paintings aren't bad either. Brangwyn was another unknown name and his World War 1 posters make slightly unsettling viewing but what a talent

The current exhibition is really good. There is a broad range of styles including some Hockneys which were good to see close up as well as some exceptional works by a local artist. Really worth going.

We picked a good time to visit as there was an exhibition on Yorkshire art which was very varied and included works by Turner and Hockney. They was also an exhibition of WW1 posters by Brangwyn mainly used to encourage donations to the war effort. Very realistic and relevant to the current celebrations. Would strongly recommend a visit

What a treat. Although a donation is requested, and I would encourage making one to enable the gallery to maintain such a high profile, this is optional so this gallery becomes available for anyone to visit. There are just enough exhibits to enjoy a half hour without being overwhelmed. Some big names too. We discovered Grimshaw and are now on the lookout for a print to buy.
