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). Adnams was born in Derby and lived most of her life in the city. Although she achieved some success in her lifetime, her work is not widely known and so this exhibition, which includes loans from Derby Museum and Art Gallery, hopes to contribute to a history of her work.
