Curator & Collections
The Curator is responsible, subject to committee approval, for all acquisitions to the Collections.
The Curator is a leading expert in the fields of modern silver, modern jewellery and modern art medals, and acts as an honorary advisor to public institutions and private individuals, as well as being a lecturer and author on these subjects.
A changing display of antique and modern silver selected from the Collections is displayed during the year within the Hall and can be viewed on Open Days by the public or by invited guests hiring the Hall for special events.
The Collections are not available as a totality for public viewing. Enquiries concerning historical and contemporary work represented in the Collections can be answered by e mail. Limited access to view the Collections is permitted for some academic research scholars as well as patrons of modern work, subject to a prior appointment with the Curator.
There is a regular programme of loans from the Collections to major exhibitions in this country and abroad.
