NEW DISPLAY OPENS AT THE ANTHONY SHAW COLLECTION AT CoCA, YORK

The new display of The Anthony Shaw Collection at the Centre of Ceramic Art in York Art Gallery has just opened. Curated by Tessa Peters, this exhibit features work by many Marsden Woo Gallery artists and associated artists, including Gordon Baldwin, Bryan Illsley, Kerry Jameson, Nao Matsunaga, Sara Radstone, Alida Sayer, Martin Smith and Emma Woffenden, amongst other significant figures in British art such as Ewen Henderson and Gillian Lowndes.

'When forming his collection Shaw has made no hierarchical distinction between art forms; for him matters of sensitivity to material and creative vision have clearly been paramount, so that paintings, sculptures, textiles and souvenirs will also be prominent features of the display' - Tessa Peters

NOW ON: PHILIP EGLIN, 'KICK THE BUCKET' UNTIL 8 OCTOBER

We have just opened his latest exhibition - Kick the Bucket by Marsden Woo Gallery artist Philip Eglin. The show runs until 8 October and sees the artist revisiting two familiar themes of his accomplished practice - a new series of large, vibrantly coloured bucket forms and a further investigation of the female nude.

This richly expressive series sees the artist continuing to explore and improvise with clay, while making work that both challenges and provokes the viewer.
