Finishing touches to new exhibition

Installation of exhibition

Fantine by Margaret Hall watches over installation of new exhibition.

The finishing touches are being put in place for The Rise of Women Artists which opens this Friday at the Walker Art Gallery.

The exhibition is a mixture of old friends such as Fantine above, who normally resides over the gallery’s staircase, as well as work not on permanent display, like a dark and moving print by Paula Rego.

A combination of paintings, photography, prints, sculpture, textiles and ceramics, all from the gallery’s own holdings, form a comprehensive look at womens’ art from the 16th century to the present day.
