NEW: GAZE: A Retrospective of Portraits by Lorna May Wadsworth

9 Nov 2019–15 Feb 2020

Graves Gallery

Lorna May Wadsworth is one of Sheffield’s real artistic success stories. During her 25 year career she’s captured an array of famous faces from the worlds of politics, entertainment and beyond.

This winter, Lorna returns home for a retrospective that brings together more than 100 of her most acclaimed portraits. Explore a visual feast of paintings of celebrated sitters, including actors David Tennant, Michael Sheen and Derek Jacobi, filmmaker Richard Curtis, author Neil Gaiman, politicians David Blunkett and Tony Blair, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, and many more.

The Time is Now

Until 19 Jan 2020

Millennium Gallery

Time flies. Time stands still. Time is against us and time is on our side…

Our whole lives are defined by the time it takes to live them. It’s in the past that we remember and the future that we imagine together, the centuries of change and the here and now.

This immersive new exhibition looks at how contemporary artists have approached our complicated relationship with time. Lose yourself in artworks that question how time affects everything we do – including Katie Paterson’s mesmerising giant mirror ball reflecting 10,000 images of solar eclipses, and Andrew Hunt’s huge paintings exploring the fleeting moment between youth and old age.

Discover work by Helen Chadwick, Braco Dimitrijević, Ruth Ewan, Ruth Levene, James Nares, Jorge Otero-Pailos, Mathew Weir and more.

Joe Scarborough – Life in the Big Village

Until 24 Nov 2019

Weston Park Museum

Free entry

With a career spanning more than 50 years, Joe Scarborough has firmly established himself as one of Sheffield’s best-loved artists. His affectionate, often humorous, depictions of everyday scenes of Yorkshire life pay tribute to the region and the spirit of its people.

Whether glimpses into bygone eras or celebrations of landmarks across Sheffield and beyond, his bold, joyful paintings have become instantly recognisable.

Today, Joe Scarborough’s work adorns the walls of homes across Sheffield, as well as private and public buildings around the world. Life in the Big Village will draw together over 60 of his paintings and drawings for the first major retrospective in over 25 years.
