    The exhibition brings nine award-winning artists to Farnham: all of them are internationally accomplished and recognised for excellence and talent through a prestigious art prize.

    The exhibition presents painting by Peter Archer (Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize), Gareth Edwards (BP Portrait Award), Martin Greenland (John Moores Painting Prize), Charlotte Harris (BP Portrait Award) and print by John Hoyland (John Moores), Sir Terry Frost (John Moores), Sandra Blow (Guggenheim International Award) and Bruce McLean (John Moores).

    It reflects on the Gallery's beginnings 60 years ago: New Ashgate was the first provincial gallery with nationally and internationally known artists such as Anthony Caro, Elizabeth Frink, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso and Graham Sutherland. This will be an exceptional opportunity to appreciate and collect work by these highly accomplished stars of the art world outside London and close to home.

    Private view: 26 April 2019, 6-8pm - all welcome.
