The Hepworth

 

Visited The Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield this weekend for the first time. Recently opened, the austere modernist exterior of the grey building looked beautiful sitting next to the fast flowing river and surrounded by barge boats and old brick buildings. The exhibitions inside were just as stunning – the sculptures of locally born Barbara Hepworth being my favourite. The simple, organic forms of Hepworth’s creations completely inspire my own work and the whole gallery had a very serene atmosphere as other related local artists’ works (including Henry Moore and Ben Nicholson) were also exhibited.
