Head to Head

Head to Head is a joy­ful cel­e­bra­tion of the mul­ti­plic­i­ty of approach­es artists have long revealed in depict­ing the human head.

Opening Times
Sun–Tue, Closed
Wed–Sat, 11:00 – 18:00
Not remotely comprehensive and never ever didactic, this exhibition, curated by Giles Baker-Smith and Cedric Christie, revels in diversity — from Dürer to Bacon to the contemporary, from the classical to the unabashedly bizarre. It embraces all media — sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and print-making — and offers them up in a literally cheek-by-jowl “St Petersburg hang” in our gallery in a Georgian townhouse in the cathedral city of Wells in the heart of Somerset.

And in the back gallery, we are proud to present Bottom Drawer, a collaborative exhibition of recent work by Jemimah Patterson and Rachel Schwalm.

The opening weekend of both exhibitions will be on Friday 30th September from 2pm to 8pm and Saturday 1st October from 11am until 6pm.

Refreshments will be served throughout.

The exhibitions will continue until November 26th .

The gallery is open from 11am-6pm Wednesday to Saturday and by appointment.
