News from The Burton
Becoming a Trust
As some of you may know, this is something we've been working on for a long time and over the next year or so a new not for profit organisation will be established. A shadow board of trustees are in place helping us work towards our final destination and we will be sure to keep you updated along the way. Although a big task ahead for the staff and volunteers our aspiration is for a thriving Burton in the future.
Practice Based Ceramics PhD
One of the most exciting pieces of news this season is the awarding of funding from the AHRC to jointly host a PhD around our RJ Lloyd Ceramics Collection, in collaboration with Bath Spa University. Applications are in and we expect the PhD studentship to begin this October.
Generous Gift from Vernon. C. Boyle's Family
Following on from the wonderful Vernon. C. Boyle exhibition earlier in the year, Vernon. C. Boyle Estate Trustees has generously gifted 8 to The Burton's Permanent Collection. One of which will be included in the Portraits exhibition in December this year.
Friends Add to the Bertram Prance works
The Friends have been hard at work over the past year and to our delight purchased 3 Bertram Prance drawings from their recent Grand Art Auction Event back in March, donating them to The Burton and making the collection of Prances 12.
