In the second room is a series of Callum Innes' watercolours which are displayed horizontally on tables, rather than on the wall. This references the way in which the watercolours are made (see video below - best viewed in full screen) and allows the viewer to examine the works more closely.
The exhibition is on until 16th June more details are on the Whitworth webpage.
There are lots of other good exhibitions to see and I particularly enjoyed John Piper: The Mountains of Wales.
Other artists work available to see at the moment include: Richard Long; Michael Landy and Beryl Korot.
I read about the Callum Innes exhibition and talk on the blog of artist Sandra Robinson The Colour of Ideas and met up with her to look around the gallery and listen to Callum speak. We also went into the cafe which is another good reason to visit the Whitworth, ideal for a coffee, snack or meal, full of seasonal produce and friendly and helpful staff as are the gallery staff at the Whitworth.
