Percy Kelly returns to Tullie House for a legacy exhibition...

Join us to celebrate the 100th birthday of Cumbrian artist Percy Kelly (1918-1993) with a very special and intimate new exhibition of Kelly's works, made possible by the generous bequests and gifts to the Percy Kelly Collection at Tullie House.

Following last year's immensely popular Percy Kelly, Line of Beauty retrospective exhibition 'A Legacy' is displayed in the very room in which Kelly would once have attended life drawing classes as a student at Carlisle College of Art.

The exhibition features works recently gifted to Tullie House by benefactors and includes preparatory sketches and final works not before seen on public display.
