You have an extra week to see Turner: The Sun is God - it closes on 6 February - but we anticipate a busy final week, so don't leave it too long to book a ticket if you're planning to see it!
Both exhibitions are proudly supported by @GrantThorntonIE, Turner Exhibitions Partner
Our exhibition Turner: The Sun is God is also open late this evening, and tickets cost only €5 after 5pm. Friends of the Gallery and children go free, and advance booking is recommended for this one.
🔎Look out for all the wonderful small details when you're taking them in, like on this painting, A Ship off Hastings, c.1820, on which we can see two of Turner's fingerprints captured for ever more on the left side of the sheet.
We're open until 8.30pm, and if you haven't been to see our exhibition of Turner watercolours and prints yet this year, you *definitely* should.
It's free, and all the works will be safely tucked away again for another year on the last day of January so time is of the essence!
