There is wheelchair access to the gallery from the north entrance of the Parkinson Building (via Chemistry) with a disabled parking space nearby.

I went to this exhibition yesterday and was impressed by the other work of Jacob Kramer – drawings , mostly – which were shown along with some less well known artists’ work . There were also contextualizing documents – lists of prizes won by Leeds students , correspondence with Sir Michael Sadler ( an early Chancellor of Leeds University who collected early 20c paintings and helped him with loans ) , some photographs etc .

If you are within striking distance of Leeds before the 20th , do go as it is very well worth while .
