Ruth Jenkins, Head of Library Services, is delighted to invite you to the Private View of the new exhibition at Manchester Metropolitan Special Collections:

Rena Gardiner: Artist and Printmaker

Thursday 20 October 2016, 5.00pm-7.00pm

Rena Gardiner (1929-1999) spent her life entirely devoted to her art, creating books, prints and paintings. She is best known for a series of guidebooks to historic places, buildings and the countryside, each of which she wrote, printed and illustrated herself. This exhibition will include some of these guidebooks alongside paintings, pastels, linocuts and sketch-books and a display of work by some of the artists who influenced Rena including Eric Ravilious, John Piper and Edward Bawden.

 The exhibition continues until Friday 18 November 2016.

We look forward to welcoming you to Special Collections soon.

Warm regards,

The Special Collections Team
