The Bowes Museum is one of the jewels in County Durham’s crown. Those who care for and work with its collections discuss their work and share insights into its history and current activities.
Join exhibition curator Bernadette Petti and leading academics for a roundtable panel discussion to accompany The Power and the Virtue: Guido Reni’s Death of Lucretia (26 October 2019 – 20 January 2020). This is the first UK exhibition outside London dedicated to the Italian Baroque master Guido Reni and features works by the artist from prestigious public and private collections. We will be looking at his outstanding career and the most recent investigations on his paintings held in UK collections. The guest speakers are Nicky Grimaldi and Michelle Carlin from Northumbria University, and Caroline Rae and Peter Black from the Hunterian Museum. Everyone is welcome and you will have the opportunity to ask questions during the event. Free, booking required.
Come and join us for a fun and festive evening at the Museum. Enjoy relaxed late night shopping for Christmas gifts, cards and decorations, and delicious food and drinks in Café Bowes from our seasonal Winter menu. The galleries will be decorated for Christmas, so it’s the perfect time to come and make some memories around the trees and enjoy the wonderful Winter exhibitions.
