Following Peter Murray's insightful speech at the opening reception of The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery's current temporary exhibition 'György Gordon (1924-2005) A retrospective' we are privileged to offer a further opportunity to hear Peter Murray talk in person about his friendship with the artist and their significant involvement in the cultural, artistic and pedagogical landscape of Wakefield and beyond.
The talk will explore Gordon and Murray's extraordinary artistic and academic contributions to our region from a personal perspective and will include a Q&A session where audience questions are welcomed. Exhibition continues to 25 February 2017.
