Our galleries are now closed until 9 July as we install our next exhibitions - #ArtistUnknownUCM and #JenniferLeePotter. The House, café and shop are all open as usual, Tuesday - Sunday.

This is the last weekend to see #MURILLOkettlesyard - don't miss your chance to see #ViolentAmnesia, his first solo exhibition at a UK public institution since his acclaimed 2013 exhibition at @southlondongallery. Earlier this year, Murillo was also nominated for a #TurnerPrize! We're open Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 5pm.

All four of these paintings are by the same artist - gold star ⭐ to the first person who can name them in the comments! #KettlesYard

IT'S THE LAST WEEK OF #MURILLOkettlesyard! Don't miss seeing the #TurnerPrize nominee, Oscar Murillo in Cambridge - the exhibition ends this Sunday, 23 June. One of Murillo’s works, 'The Institute for Reconciliation' spreads across all the spaces at #KettlesYard. It includes a group of figures made of papier-mâché in St Peter’s Church. These are ‘Mateos’, which are traditionally burned in Colombia at New Year.

Alfred Wallis' 'Five Ships – Mount’s Bay' (c.1928) depicts five Cornish luggers (small sailing ships) sailing into Mount’s Bay. Ships at sea were principal subjects for the English painter, fisherman and scrap merchant #AlfredWallis who painted from memory, regarding his paintings as an expression of his experiences. He spent much of his working life at sea and then as a scrapyard merchant living on the coast. He never went outside to paint from life, but instead painted from his memory, recalling the boats and ships he had seen and sailed on. The artist Ben Nicholson remembers him declaring ‘Houses – houses – I don’t like houses – give me a ship and you take all the houses in the world!’ #KettlesYard #handfulofobjects
