Gavagan Art Spring 2020


DSC07271 (1).jpg




Easter usually marks the opening of our annual season of exhibitions. This year is rather different.

We had hoped to open as usual for our next exhibition, however due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, the gallery at the Town Hall, Settle, will remain closed until we are able to safely re-open.

With these uncertain times ahead, we look forward to the day when we can welcome you back to the gallery, though we do not know yet when that will be.

The main image above is a print by Sir Terry Frost RA. While he was detained as a prisoner of war during World War Two, Sir Terry first learnt how to paint, initially by painting portraits of his fellow POWs. You can listen to him discussing this in an interview on BBC Radio’s Desert Island Disks, available on their website.

We felt his powerful words about the importance of art, and of painting, even in the most difficult circumstances, were a source of reassurance and even inspiration in the present moment.

We at Gavagan Art continue to wish you and your families well in this challenging period.
