Information

Information

Animal motifs occupy an important place in artist Nicholas Wright’s practice. This exhibition is the first time that more than a hundred of his works depicting a menagerie of species (mice, dogs, cats, horses, parrots, cows, chickens and other wild fowl) have been shown together in the UK. Ceramic wall pieces, made over the last 30 years, are displayed alongside more recent prints, drawings and preparatory sketches.
