A major exhibition of work by Gordon Baldwin will open at York Art Gallery next month. Featuring over 100 works dating from the 1960s right up to the present day, the show coincides with the year of Baldwin's 80th birthday and is a fitting testament to his distinguished career as one of the world's most influential ceramic artists. The show will run from 11 February - 10 June 2012 before commencing a national tour.

A new full-colour book to accompany the exhibition, edited by David Whiting and with photography by Philip Sayer, will also launch at the opening.

This is very exciting for us, as many of us here at the gallery have been heavily involved with the project. Marsden Woo Director Tatjana Marsden is the curator of the show, our own gallery artist Martin Smith was commissioned to design all of the bespoke display stands and gallery staff Rachael Crabtree and Alida Sayer have also contributed significantly to many aspects of the organisation and promotion.
