QAN visit to Turner Contemporary, Margate
December 11 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
A few QAN members and friends will be visiting the Patrick Heron exhibition together. A chance to savour his art, and share our responses, and see one anothers’ faces. There will be a guided tour of the exhibition starting at 12 noon, for about 45 minutes.
Well meet at the Gallery starting with coffee around 11. The exhibition is free but a donation of £2 per person would be appreciated, especially in the light of our guided tour.
Please contact Dorothy Jerrome, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07811 678 673 if you’d like to come.
Here’s what the critics say:
Patrick Heron played a vital role in the development of post-war abstract painting and this is the first major show of his work for 20 years. The exhibition provides a rare opportunity to experience the scope and ambitious scale of his painting as well as his consistent attachment to the subject of colour. Here’s what the critics say:
Patrick Heron’s giant abstracts could make you swoon… A late style of mastery and experiments ……exquisite design and broken space….The atmosphere of elemental landscape around his house bleeding into these primal forms…..
Also still on display are Cornelia Parker’s Perpetual Canon (flattened brass instruments suspended from the ceiling; “I resurrect things that have been killed off”) and Antony Gormley’s Another Time (tide permitting).
