Spot the works by Lowry, Turner and Hockney, and surround yourself with some of the best ceramic art in the world at York Art Gallery, reopened in August 2015 after an £8m transformation. The development of the Grade 2* listed 19th-century building has opened up 60% more exhibition space than previously, with a new mezzanine floor housing the Centre of Ceramic Art (CoCA), and expanded galleries showcasing major new installations and internationally-important artwork.

The opening displays include almost 2,000 ceramic works including star pieces by Grayson Perry, Bernard Leach, William Staite Murray, Felicity Aylieff, Lucie Rie, Hans Coper and Kate Malone. Also enjoying the new surroundings are the gallery's renowned Lycett Green collection of Italian Old Masters from the 14th to 18th centuries, notable works from 20th century artists such as L.S. Lowry, Paul Nash, David Hockney and Stanley Spencer as well as works by York artist William Etty
