Grayson Perry exhibition at Croome
Croome is delighted to be presenting works by international contemporary artist Grayson Perry, well known for chronicling modern life through ceramics, tapestries and other art forms.
Visitors can see three tapestries and two etchings centred around the theme of landscapes and identity which link to the Trust’s National Public Programme 'People’s Landscapes' exploring the social history of places.
Displayed over two rooms are the ‘Battle of Britain’, ‘Red Carpet’ and ‘The Digmoor Tapestry’ alongside intricate etchings of ‘Map of an Englishman’ and ‘Map of Days’.
Artworks are courtesy of Paragon, based in London, publishers in the contemporary art world and owners of many works by Perry.
" This is the second show of Grayson Perry’s work at Croome, the last one in 2016. The whole team is really excited for the launch on 2 March 2019 – there are some fantastic works included, some of which were only made in 2017"
The free exhibition is on show from Saturday 2 March until Sunday 29 September 2019 between 11am-4pm (normal admission applies to access Croome).
