Richard Long, A Line Made by Walking, 1967

The riverside setting of Abbot Hall Art Gallery makes a fitting backdrop to this ARTIST ROOMS exhibition of work by seminal British artist Richard Long. Since the late 1960s Long has made work in the landscape. His practice of making walks in the natural world led him to be one of the most prominent and pioneering artists of his generation, extending art beyond the boundaries of the gallery. ARTIST ROOMSis the outstanding collection of post-war and contemporary art assembled by the art collector Anthony d'Offay and part-gifted to the nation in 2008 with support from the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Art Fund and the Scottish Government.For more information about the exhibition visit www.abbothall.org.uk or call 01539 722464.
