Art Exhibition, Sat 4 Feb - Mon 17 Apr 2017, free entry
Towner holds one of the largest public collections of works by Sussex artist Eric Ravilious (1903-1942). Our permanent Ravilious Room is a dedicated space to admire a selection of his finest watercolours, prints and ceramics, explore our comprehensive archive and browse books on the artist. To accompany our exhibition Towards Night, the latest display draws on nocturnal themes and echos the world of wonderment explored in the exhibition. This display features many wood engravings by Ravilious and includes his illustrations of the signs of the zodiac for the 1929 Lanston Almanack. The room features specially commissioned cabinets to view and enjoy the Ravilious archive. Copies of the wide range of Ravilious books will also be available for you to read.
Please note the Ravilious Room will be closed for a change of display from 23 January-3 February. It will then be closed from 18 April until late October during our major new Ravilious Exhibition and for a period before and after this exhibition. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
