Vija Celmins is an acclaimed Latvian-American visual artist whose paintings and drawings depict natural environments and phenomena. Her work often portrays photo-realistic depictions of the ocean, spider webs, star fields, and rocks.
A selection of her works from the ARTIST ROOMS collection will be displayed at the Huddersfield Art Gallery.
The ARTIST ROOMS programme of exhibitions with partner museums and galleries enables access to modern and contemporary art of international significance in rural areas, small towns and major cities throughout the UK.
Exhibitions are happening throughout 2019 and into 2020 in venues large and small, the length and breadth of the country, from Dundee to The Isle of Wight.
Works from the ARTIST ROOMS collection can also be seen at Tate sites in London, Liverpool and St Ives as well as at National Galleries of Scotland sites in Edinburgh.
