Three Stones in the City of Ladies, curated by Elisa Kay
Private View: Friday 21 January 2011, 17.30-20.00 Three Stones in the City of Ladies* is a group exhibition about repetition and looking back. The works in the show are gathered around a painting from the Nottingham City Museums and Gallerie’s collection; a surrealist landscape called Three Stones by Marion Adnams (1898 – 1995).
