Friends of Kettle’s Yard support essential conservation of Alfred Wallis paintings
The Friends have contributed £32,339.44 towards essential conservation of 38 Alfred Wallis paintings in the Kettle’s Yard Collection. Kettle’s Yard holds the largest collection of works by Alfred Wallis and his paintings of the sea, ships and the world around him are some of the most loved works in the collection. Many of the paintings are on unsuitable backing and poorly framed. This funding will enable the careful replacement of the backing and reframing of these works in time for the reopening of Kettle’s Yard.
All the money raised by the Friends of Kettle’s Yard goes towards supporting Kettle’s Yard House and Gallery, the collection, the exhibitions and the extensive learning and community programmes.
