There’s a lot to see this November at the Treasure House in Beverley with three new exhibitions opening on the same day (Saturday, 10 November).
Legacy: A Painterly Response to WW1 shows artworks created by artist Paul Clifford. The artworks use copies of historic photographs which have been recycled using paint, print and text. In 1918, Paul’s father sailed back from England to Egypt where he had served as part of the East Riding Yeomanry. Photographs of the Desert Expeditionary Force from East Riding Archives provide the starting point for the exhibition which also references the broader cultural and historical inheritance of the campaigns in the Middle East.
Working Hands: Photographs by Peter Barker presents a body of 25 documentary photographs taken in and around Beverley between 2014 and 2017. Peter’s contemplative portraits record the tools, skills and concentration at the heart of today’s manual production and show that the connection between thinking and doing, jeopardised by the production line, endures in such activities.
In the community space, the exhibition Discovering Through Archives: First World War Lives presents an overview of the East Riding Archives’ “First World War Lives” project. As part of the project, local volunteers worked through a huge amount of historical data, such as newspapers, rolls of honour and ledgers, to tell the stories of over 700 First World War servicemen from the local area.
Curator Helena Gaudekova said : “Drop in to our Exhibitions First Look event on the first day of the exhibitions (Saturday 10 November, from 1pm – 3pm) and meet some of the artists, volunteers and Treasure House staff involved. Everybody will be very welcome.”
The exhibitions run until 26 January, 2019, and admission is free.
