The Sting of Passion - Manchester Art Gallery


From now until October 25, 2009, Manchester Art Gallery will be hosting an exhibit of Pre-Raphaelite-inspired jewellery from twelve international designers. The jewellery will be shown alongside paintings from the museum's extensive Pre-Raphaelite art collection that have inspired the artists.

Admission to the show is free, so if you're nearby, this is something to be sure to check out!

If this is Manchester in England then I must go and see this exhibition.It looks really interesting. I shall be there with my daughter next weekend but not sure if it's her kind of thing so I may need another trip.

Me too. If I am 'up north' then I will drop into the City Art Gallery. Always good for a refresher, some great Ernst's last time.

Looks like an amazing display. Perhaps I'll be able to pay a visit to Manchester?

If more beautiful snow is needed for your wall, how about letting an artist paint it for you. This tranquil picture, by American painter at the turn of the 20th century, John Henry Twachtman, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8DP7S7 , is an example of many others to be found at wahooart.com that can be ordered online from as a canvas print of any size to be delivered to your door.
