Still life painting—Adam Pyett - until 16 July
This survey exhibition of works spanning over ten years charts Adam Pyett’s long-standing interest in the still life genre. Mining traditional subjects from leaves and flowers, transparent vessels, and skulls through to those that reflect popular culture such as drink cans and rock t-shirts, still life is the genre through which Pyett explores his primary interest, the subject of painting itself.
Open daily 10am–5pm. Drop-in tours of the permanent collection Sunday between 2pm-4pm. Free entry.
