An exhibition celebrating the work of outstanding British sculptor, Elisabeth Frink.

Abbot Hall Art Gallery's summer show explores and celebrates the work of one of the most exciting and individual British sculptors of the 20th century.

Never compromising on the development of her own style, Elisabeth Frink ignored the commercial fashions throughout her career, creating works that combine the fragile nature of humanity with its power.

The exhibition will be the first large-scale show of work by Frink in the North West for several years and the first time the gallery has dedicated a major exhibition to her in its 55-year history.

The show will display over 25 pieces including sculpture, maquettes and works on paper.

The majority of the work will be in the upstairs galleries; however, a selection of larger sculpture including, Walking, Madonna, 1981 and Riace lll, 1986, will be exhibited in the Georgian entrance hall and ground floor galleries amongst period interiors and historic works.
