The launch of the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield

Tonight I had the privilege of attending the launch of the Hepworth Gallery here in Wakefield. Barbara Hepworth was born in Wakefield and it is so wonderful to see much of her work back in her home town.  I first saw her work back in the 1980s when the Yorkshire Sculpture Park opened.
Here are some photos I took of the night - expect more in the future


  1. Looks like a great evening, you lucky thing, I've seen some of B.H's work at Snape Maltings Suffolk and at The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts along with work from H.M. I find it very tactile.

  2. I love both their work Jan - they really touch your spirit don't they?

  3. Wish I could have been there.

  4. We will have to meet there for coffee Sheila - i'm looking forward to Monday at your Art in the Garden!
