Landing Gallery: Celebrating the Legacy of Barry Till
September 19, 2017 @ 12:00 am - November 4, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Barry Till by Maggi Hambling, 1986
Barry Till (1923-2013) was Principal of Morley College London from 1965 to 1986, establishing Morley as the centre of excellence for adult education and the creative arts it is today.
The artworks on display were given to Till on his retirement from the College from members of staff in Morley’s visual arts department including Denzil Forrester, Adrian Bartlett and Jennifer Hollingdale. They reflect the gratitude felt by staff for his leadership which centred on a belief in the transformative power of the creative arts in adult education.
This exhibition launches the renovation of the gallery space and its renaming as The Barry Till Gallery.
