Jewish Artists in Yorkshire at The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery
The exhibition forms part of the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Leeds Jewish community. The exhibition is based around the major Jewish artists in the University of Leeds Art Collection (Jacob Kramer, Philip Naviasky, Willy Tirr) and loans from other public and private collections, including works by Joash Woodrow. Contemporary artists are also represented by Lydia Bauman, Gillian Singer and Judith Tucke.

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 .
