‘From pantry to table’ and ‘Through the keyhole’ exhibitions

  • Date: -

The Stanley and Audrey Gallery hosts two new exhibitions curated by MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies students from the University of Leeds.

From Pantry to Table: The Preparation and Presentation of Food in 18th and 19th Century Yorkshire will showcase ceramics considered essential for the ideal fine dining experience during the 18th and 19th centuries, highlighting objects significant in the creation and storage of food, as well as those used for display and decoration.

‘Through the Keyhole: The Camden Town Group Reinterpreted’ will present a selection of drawings from the gallery’s own collection of works on paper made bewtween c.1907-1911. Focusing on the representation of working women within the Camden Town Groups’ work, the exhibition will ask whether what we are witnessing is an honest interpretation of the stories and realities of these women or a more voyeuristic and invasive glimpse into their domestic lives?

The exhibitions run from 28 October to 7 December
