Hello from the Harley Gallery
Join us this March to see The Portland Collection and The Grand Tour: Season 2.
We’re very excited to announce our new Gallery for The Portland Collection, designed by Hugh Broughton Architects, will open its doors to the public on March 20th, and will be open 11am-4pm daily. The Collection includes works by Stubbs, Van Dyck and Michelangelo. Sir Peter Blake has selected a display of Miniatures from the Collection, which will be on show in the new gallery’s ‘Miniatures Octagon’ designed by John Ronayne.
Season two of The Grand Tour will coincide and will show a two-part display of original collages from Sir Peter Blake’s celebrated ‘World Tour’ series, and an exhibition from influential performance artist Rose English which explores equestrian themes by juxtaposing her own work with objects from The Portland Collection.
There’s plenty of things to do and with the weather finally picking up be sure to try one of our recommended Welbeck walks.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
