    Gallery Group 1 October and November Visits

    13th November 2018

    In October the group visited Kettles Yard Gallery, established by Jim Ede, a curator and collector, and his wife in 1956, when they bought and restored a pair of tumbledown cottages in Cambridge. They encouraged visitors to come in the afternoons to see the collection of mainly 20th century British art, which is set alongside furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects in the harmonious, domestic setting. In 1966 the gallery was given to the University of Cambridge. Since then it has been extended several times and an exhibition space has recently been added. Many fine works of artists such as Ben Nicholson, Alfred Wallace and Christopher Wood can be seen, plus sculpture by European artists, such as Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Constantin Brancusi. Visiting Kettles Yard is a particularly interesting and unique experience. In November a visit was made to the Royal Academy ‘Oceania’ exhibition to see a remarkable collection of art from the islands of the South Pacific,...
