Carel Weight RA: Artist, Advisor, Collector and Benefactor

14 April 2018 – 8 January 2019

A prolific collector, Carel also acted as advisor to Tullie House’s own Art Purchase Scheme.

This display showcases works by a range of Royal Academicans including L.S. Lowry, Sheila Fell and Peter Blake.  It also offers a fascinating insight into the varied interests and tastes of Weight himself, and their lasting effect on Tullie House’s own art collection.

This exhibition is being shown in the Library in Old Tullie House and will be open to the public when the room is not in use by external clients.  If you are coming to the Museum especially to see this exhibition, please contact 01228 618718 to check if the exhibition is open to the public on that day.
