Collections, Collectors and Curators
Wednesday 23 April 2014, 10.30am - 5pm
Free with admission
The current exhibitions at both Abbot Hall Art Gallery and Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House, have been made possible because of a passion for collecting art and artifacts and are a reminder that human beings have always loved collecting! Are you an avid collector? What is it about your collection that you value? How do you store your objects? How do you display them and tell their story? This is a wonderful opportunity to bring your collections to the Lakeland Arts plinth where your display and stories will be photographed, documented and then uploaded onto the new Treasures of Cumbria project website.
The event is also taking place at Abbot Hall Art Gallery on Wednesday 16 April.
