SIR SIDNEY NOLAN
‘Nolan has pursued his own path. His predominantly figurative style has been an aesthetic refuge for eyes and minds bored by abstraction. His imagination is endlessly questing and his artistic and technical invention perhaps unparalleled.’ Jane Clark, 1987
Self-taught and experimental, from the outset Nolan was resolutely modern.
“In a world that is difficult, hard to get through, music and paintings and poetry are apparently a kind of device, maybe a kind of evolutionary device, which has developed to get us through.” Sidney Nolan, Yorkshire Post, 3 August 1992
The impact on the Trust of having to close our doors for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus crisis is becoming apparent.
Almost 90% of our 2020 creative and learning programmes will either be cancelled or postponed until next year. We are set to lose this year’s income from admissions, workshops, concerts and events. This is a huge blow to us.
I appreciate that these are extremely challenging times for all of us, but as an arts charity which operates primarily in the summer months, admission income, in particular, is critically important to us.
Would you help us by donating a virtual admission fee of £6 or more?
In the spirit of Sidney Nolan, we will, in return, do all we can to provide interesting and engaging creative content on-line to help you get through these difficult times. Please support us by donating to our campaign: Keeping Art Alive.
We are extremely grateful to those who have already given a gift and hope others will be able to do so despite these uncertain times.
