Background to the Bowes MuseumNew Light Exhibition and Prize
We were lucky to get in and see the last day of the the New Light Prize Exhibition, which had opened in October 2015 at the Bowes Museum and now I think moves on to the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate and then onto London in June.
I only took a couple of snaps but found a link to this year’s Exhibition where all the work can be viewed on the What’s New page.
The Robert Mapplethorpe Exhibition on level two was an added bonus -
The magic in the muse is an interesting display that is on until April 2016; for any lover of Mapplethorpe, or great portrait photography, then this is a must also visit!
You can see what's on here Bowes Museum I can't praise it highly enough, we bought a six month pass and will be back again very soon.
I hope you like my pictures and I am pleased the Bowes museum also have shared some of them, indeed feel free to spread the word!
