Aberdeen Art Gallery showcases some of the most prominent figures in the history of British metalworking.
Metalwork has played a central role in our lives for centuries, from everyday domestic objects to the ceremonial commissions found in churches and government buildings.
Combining works from the permanent collection and the Goldsmiths’ Company Collection, on loan from London, this exciting new exhibition showcases some of the most prominent figures in the history of British metalworking and explores how they have engaged with this versatile material.
Sitting alongside the historic silver in this exhibition is a comprehensive selection of modern and contemporary metalwork by some of the leading makers in Britain such as Gerald Benney, Malcolm Appleby and Chris Knight.
There will also be a talk accompanying the exhibition given by curator Kate Gillespie on Wednesday 22 June from 12:30- 13:00.
