York Art Gallery

25 May 2019 – 17 May 2020

Large scale sculptures by internationally acclaimed artist Michael Lyons will be displayed in this major new outside exhibition in York this spring.

Ancient and Modern will include nine sculptures inspired by nature, myth and ancient cultures.

Lyons, who died suddenly in April 2019, worked from Cawood, North Yorkshire, with this the first major exhibition of his work in York.

The sculptures will be displayed in the unique setting of York Art Gallery’s Artists Garden, with the central space dominated by Amphitrite (1993), a large painted steel structure.

The exhibition is free and will run for 12 months.
