The Art of Collecting 



John Wilson & Roger Cucksey

Guest Curators




Newport Museum & Art Gallery

July 2007 - 2008





Exhibition theme


THE ART OF COLLECTING provides a public airing of works by some of the better known artists in the Newport Museum and Art Gallery's permanent collections. 

 
Over a hundred years in the making, Newport has quietly built up a public art collection of which it can be proud. 


The exhibition highlights the way in which the Newport Museum and Art Gallery's permanent collections have been formed through a fortuitous mix of private benefactions, public educational principles and curatorial nurturing over the decades.
