Presenting a duo of new displays from The University of Leeds’ MA Museum Studies programme.

28th October - 7th December 2013

October 28th will see the opening of two new, small, but perfectly formed displays organised by the University's own MA Museum Studies Students.

A selection of Yorkshire Pottery  - From Pantry to Table: The Preparation and Presentation of Food in 18th and 19th Century Yorkshire will showcase ceramics considered essential for the ideal fine dining experience during the 18th and 19th centuries, highlighting objects significant in the creation and storage of food, as well as those used for display and decoration.

'Through the Keyhole: The Camden Town Group Reinterpreted' will present a selection of drawings from the gallery's own collection of works on paper made bewtween c.1907-1911. Focusing on the representation of working women within the Camden Town Groups' work, the exhibition will ask whether what we are witnessing is an honest interpretation of the stories and realities of these women or a more voyeuristic and invasive glimpse into their domestic lives?

A special opening celebrating these two displays will take place on Tuesday 29th October 2013 6-8pm. All are welcome to attend.
