About Journey Into Abstraction

John Sprakes’s retrospective at Beverley Art Gallery covers over 60 years of the artist’s professional life. Most importantly, it takes us on a journey from John’s early realistic work, towards his later vividly colourful abstractions.

John studied at Edinburgh College of Art and later worked as a college lecturer for 36 years. He exhibited many times across the UK.

The exhibition was put on hold when Beverley Art Gallery closed in March 2020. The exhibition has been adapted to an online format on the East Riding Museums website.

You can view the exhibition online here: East Riding Museums Online
