The Year That Made Antarctica

The Year That Made Antarctica

Over dinner in the spring of 1950 a party of scientists produced an ambitious proposal for a global year of science: the International Geophysical Year was born. With a heavy emphasis on Antarctica, thousands of people from dozens of countries came together to learn about our planet.

Sea to Shore: Paintings by Alfred Wallis & Christopher Wood Kettle’s Yard at the Fitzwilliam Museum

Sat 1 April - Sun 27 August

Fitzwilliam Museum

This third display from the Kettle’s Yard collection brings together paintings by Alfred Wallis and Christopher Wood that are inspired by the sea and shore. Following the artists’ first meeting in St Ives in 1928, Wallis and Wood continued to capture innovatively their experiences of the sea. Their paintings also depict the flavour of life in port towns.

The display includes 17 extraordinary paintings by Cornish artist and mariner Alfred Wallis, who painted from memory using the materials around him, recalling his days at sea.

Find out more about Kettle’s Yard’s plans and their collection on their website: www.kettlesyard.co.uk
