EXHIBITIONS AT THE VESTEY GALLERY
2013 promises to be an exciting year for exhibitions at the BSAT’s Vestey and Forbes galleries (based in the National Horseracing Museum, Newmarket).
Jewels of the Jockey Club
A selection of the finest paintings and trophies from the Jockey Club Rooms
From 19 January – 17 March 2013 we will be hosting an exclusive exhibition, courtesy of the Jockey Club, of some of the best British sporting art in the world. The exhibition includes such gems as Stubbs's ‘Gimcrack’ and ‘Eclipse’ as well as works by Wootton, Tillemans, Herring, Ferneley, Munnings and other masters. These beautiful works of art are not usually available to be viewed by the general public, so do not miss the opportunity to see them.
Lords of the Ring
Scenes and characters from boxing’s golden age
As it grew from backstreet brawling to organised sport, boxing developed glamour, rivalries, celebrity supporters and obsessions that would not be out of place in today’s worlds of showbusiness and premier league football. This vibrant collection of contemporary prints gives a flavour of the lives of the people who combined brains and brawn to create and compete in that most ‘noble of arts’.
