About This Project

Portraits from the Williamson collections

The Williamson Art Gallery collection contains a great many portraits. Some of the faces may be familiar, others less so, and the subjects come from all walks of life.

Facing The Subject is an opportunity for you to get to know some of these people whose portraits appear in our collections. This exhibition features artworks – in paint, on paper, in sculpture and ceramics – that capture the likenesses and personalities of a wide range of people from all walks of life.

The exhibition runs 6th April – 18th June (closed bank holidays) in Galleries 4 & 5. Free entry.

Exhibition Talks: Curator Niall Hodson will be leading talks about the exhibition on Friday 3rd June 6-6:30pm. Free to attend – book your place via Eventbrite or walk-in places available on the day.
