THE QUADRIGA GALLERY Wellington Arch
EXHIBITIONS AT THE QUADRIGA GALLERY IN 2012
- Stonehenge: Monumental Journey (9 May - 24 June):
For centuries, Stonehenge has been a place of wonder and of religious pilgrimage, of celebration and of protest, of music festivals and of tourist curiosity. This exhibition will show how the monument has been experienced and presented over time and how Stonehenge will soon be freed from the "roads triangle" and reconnected with the wider landscape.
- Blackpool: The Wonderland of the World (4 July - 27 August):
Archive posters, prints and photographs will evoke the magic and glamour of two of Blackpool's most remarkable buildings - Blackpool Tower and the Winter Gardens. Their architecture and role in the history of light entertainment will be celebrated as will their repair and restoration, the result of a partnership between English Heritage and Blackpool Council.
- The Ladies of Kenwood (6 September - 28 October):
Successive wives and women have all influenced the appearance and experience of Robert Adam's London masterpiece. As Kenwood House is closed for repair, this exhibition explores the intriguing stories of these ladies, through the sculpture, paintings furniture and jewellery associated with them. It includes Kenwood's collection of miniatures and 1,500 glittering shoe buckles.
- Egypt in England (7 November - 6 January 2013):
This exhibition will reveal the long-lasting and deep-seated influence of ancient Egypt on English architecture and design from Regency interiors to Art Deco cinemas.
