Hepworth Whitworth Another Place

Claire Higgott, Susie, Claudia and Daline had a fabulous 3 day trip North to visit the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield that won the Art Fund Museum of the Year Award where the Kettles Yard collection was on temporary display alongside Barbara Hepworth's work, then we drove over the stunning Peak District Moors to visit the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester and see the beautiful new extension that was shortlisted for the architectural Stirling Prize.   The following day we spent watching Anthony Gormley's figures emerge from the ebbing tide at his 'Another Place' installation on an almost empty Crosby beach with a backdrop windmills out at sea, the Liverpool docks and the Welsh Mountains in the distance.  A trip with plenty of inspiration and all in fabulous sunshine!
