Archaeologic art on display at Usher Gallery

Artwork: Two renowned artists will have some of their best works displayed at the Usher Gallery this month.

Two well-known British artists will be displaying their best works in the Usher Art Gallery later this January.

The gallery will be hosting Sculpture Out Of Landscape, an exhibition featuring Richard Long’s Stone Circle 1972 and Cornelia Parker’s Neither From nor Towards.

The exhibit will start on January 28 through until March 25, and is free to view.

Maggie Warren, Collection’s Access Assistant, said: “This is a terrific opportunity to see some brilliant examples of classic British sculpture.

“Cornelia Parker and Richard Long are highly regarded as two of the most influential sculptors of the 21st century.

“Both artists have turned materials found in the landscape into sculpture, with minimal physical alteration.

“Cornelia’s piece is a beautiful structure consisting of seemingly floating fragments of orange, sea worn brick collected from an eroded coast. Richard’s is made up of stones he found near the river Avon.

“The works perfectly complement and contrast with the gallery’s permanent displays of art and archaeology.”
