This series of year long interventions into the Garman Ryan Collection has been selected by the gallery's Front of House team.

There is a diverse range of work on display, from a collage made by Dean Kelland following his Artist Residency at the Gallery in 2013; to a new sculpture acquisition by Damien Hirst’s fellow YBA Angus Fairhurst; and old favourites such as the portrait of Sergeant Major William Purvis; along with contemporary visitor favourites such as Peter Calleson’s Dead Angels.

The 40 works reflect the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the Garman Ryan Collection in 2014. The Garman Ryan Collection was gifted to the people of Walsall by Lady Kathleen Epstein, and first went on display in July 1974 on the first floor reference room of Walsall Library. In line with Kathleen’s wishes the works are displayed in themed rooms, and the interventions complement these themes.
