Truth and Beauty: The 20th Century British Art of pioneering art collector Helen Sutherland at the Granary Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed celebrates the life of the art patron who supported early career artists and in doing so contributed to the development of modern British art in the early 1930s. Between 1929 and 1939 she leased Rock Hall near Alnwick in Northumberland, effectively as a sanctuary away from London for her burgeoning circle of artist friends. The exhibition features a number of rarely-seen loans from private collections which span the entire time Sutherland collected art. They include works by Ben Nicholson, Winifred Nicholson, David Jones, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Alfred Wallis, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham and the Ashington Group.
