Please donate to The Soper Collection
Further donations will be used to expand and enhance the facilities at the Pannett Art Gallery.
By creating a permanent home for The Collection, The Gallery will be providing public access to the little known, but much revered, genius of the Soper family. Artists, children and art, history and wildlife-lovers alike will be able to learn from the work of true masters of their craft. Artists who, at their very core, were experts in expressing the life and movement of the natural world.
But we needed your help to get there… Yes – wonderful help has enabled this but future help will enhance facilities.
FVIMVA ET SVMVS : We have been and will be.
On our Home Page and on the Newsletter Page, where you will see more quotes and images, you will read that Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby, is the new permanent home for The Soper Collection. The Pannett Art Gallery is a wonderful venue set in the spacious grounds of Pannett Park.
The Town Mayor of Whitby, Cllr Linda Wild, writes: “I would like to thank the Soper Trust for entrusting this wonderful collection to the care of the Pannett Art Gallery. Our gallery attracts visitors from across the world. We are really pleased that existing and future audiences of all ages will now have the opportunity to see and engage with these beautiful artworks alongside our established collections.”
