An exhibition of drawings and prints by Yorkshire sculptor Austin Wright (1911-1997) offers a rare opportunity to see a superb collection of work by an artist regarded in 1955 as ‘the most gifted sculptor working in Britain today'. A natural successor to Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, only a year after becoming a full time sculptor Wright was selected to show in the British Council's 1956 ‘Younger British Sculptors' exhibition alongside Kenneth Armitage, Lynn Chadwick, Elizabeth Frink and Eduardo Paolozzi. Wright's drawings reveal a fascination with the geometry of plant forms, his interest in rock formations and his underlying love of the Yorkshire landscape.
