Turner : Northern Exposure. This spring we celebrate the tour of the North that transformed William Turner from a working architectural draftsman, to a master of light and landscape and one of the most influential artists in British history. An exclusive companion exhibition explores how Turner's legacy continues to shape the work of contemporary artist to this day.
The Harogate district fine art collection includes works by William Powell Frith, Atkinson Grimshaw, Sir Edward Burne-Jones, Dame Laura Knight, Alan Davie and many more. A changing exhibition programme for the main and North galleries ranges from national touring exhibitions of painting, photography, sculpture and crafts to exhibitions from the permanent collections to displays by local artists.
The whole Mercer Art Gallery collection is not however on permanent display.
Paintings, prints and drawings from it are featured in our lively and diverse exhibition programme throughout the year.
Open: 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday, 12 noon to 4pm Sunday.
Entry is free!
