Van Gogh & Japan
Dates:23/03/2018-24/06/2018

Van Gogh created his own image of Japan by studying and reading about Japanese art, collecting and copying prints, and discussing their aesthetic qualities with other artists. His encounter with Japanese prints helped him to give his work a new direction. The exhibition will demonstrate, step by step, how Van Gogh bent the Japanese example to his will. In this way he defined himself as a modern artist and positioned himself opposite such artists as Emile Bernard and Paul Gauguin. The size, nature and importance of Van Gogh’s own collection of Japanese prints will be explored in detail, as will the role played by his prints in the renewal of his own idiom.

Women of the Arts & Crafts Movement
Dates:15/09/2017-01/01/2018

In anticipation of Lakeland Arts’ 2018 programme celebrating the 1918 Representation of People’s Act in which women first received the right to vote in the UK, this exhibition highlights the diverse skills of the women artists and designers associated with the Arts & Crafts Movement. The show recognises works by women artists whose contributions have often been overlooked, or wrongly attributed in favour of a more prominent male family member. Textiles, jewellery, bookbinding, enamels and illustrations by May Morris, Margaret Macdonald, Ann Macbeth and Phoebe Anna Traquair will be displayed, with loans from the Victoria & Albert Museum and National Museum of Scotland.
