Dandelion: An Exhibition by Ed Burkes

Museum and Art Gallery

From 11 September 2020 to 21 February 2021

As per opening times at Museum and Art Gallery

Dandelion is an exhibition of new paintings by artist Ed Burkes, winner of the eighth Jonathan Vickers Fine Art Award. Established by Foundation Derbyshire in 1998, with the help of a legacy from the late Jonathan Vickers, the biennial Award brings to Derbyshire a rising artist every two years to produce work on the theme ‘A Sense of Place’, inspired by the county’s people, heritage and landscape.

Based at the University of Derby’s Banks Mill Studios, Ed has produced a body of new work for solo exhibitions at both Derby Museum and Art Gallery and the Mall Galleries in London. Ed’s work in Derbyshire has been inspired by everyday observations, hidden history and the poetics of language, and the tradition of Well Dressing is a recurring theme.

A selection of prints and a catalogue of Ed’s work are available to purchase here. You can also purchase original artworks, please contact Derby Museums for more info.
