Young Gallery Salisbury
Housed in Salisbury Library, the Young Gallery unites three formerly separate collections; The Young Collection, the John Creasey Museum collection and the Edgar Barclay Collection.
In 1913, Edwin Young bequeathed an art gallery to Salisbury and today it still displays his work capturing rural life in Salisbury, as well as pictures by other leading watercolourists. The gallery now also incorporates the John Creasey Museum collection, which includes crime and thriller novels, political ephemera and Modern Art ? featured are works by Bill Brandt, Fay Godwin, David Jones, Anish Kapoor, Henry Moore and Paul Nash. The Edgar Barclay collection of paintings of Stonehenge are also on display at the gallery.
