Yorkshire Art Trail
- The Friends of Kettle’s Yard hit the Yorkshire arts trail
From Gaudier Brzeska’s sketch of Ezra Pound nestling between the superb Old Masters at Harewood House near Leeds to the ebullience of Miro’s late 3D works at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, via Fiona Rae’s dazzling show at the Leeds Art Gallery, the David Hockney collection at Salts Mill and of course the great new Hepworth Wakefield….48 Friends lapped up the Yorkshire arts scene over a packed 3 day weekend in late June. We all came away believing there must be something special in the Yorkshire air that gave life to such giants as Moore, Hepworth, Hockney and now of course, Hirst. This lively yet relaxed trip was typical of the great programme of events that Friends of Kettle’s Yard can enjoy.
