We are ready for our Easter exhibition, a perfect start to Spring, ‘Kate Nicholson – Cumbria and St Ives’
Kate, the daughter of Ben and Winifred Nicholson, has lived for a large part of her life quietly in Cornwall, well away from public attention. However, she exhibited in many exhibitions from the 1950s to the 1980s including one-person shows at the Waddington Galleries and Marjorie Parr Gallery (both London) and LYC Museum and Art Gallery, Cumbria. Her work was also included in the landmark exhibition ‘St.Ives 1939-64; Twenty Five Years of Painting, Sculpture and Pottery’, at Tate Gallery, London in 1885.
Kate Nicholson is represented in several public collections, among them: Arts Council Collection, University of Cambridge, Fitzwilliam Museum, Kettles Yard, Pallant House and Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery.
A catalogue is available on request. An essay from our 2013 exhibition is online as the catalogue from that show is now out of print.
