Charles Tunnicliffe a Creative Legacy


An exhibition to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the acquisition of the Charles Tunnicliffe collection and 120 years since the birth of the artist.

Charles Tunnicliffe’s incredible artwork is in no doubt the most signifcant part of our collection. Purchased by Anglesey Council in 1981, it paved the way for the creation of Oriel Môn and of Anglesey’s museum service. This exhibition tells the story of the acquisition and presents key highlights of the artist’s work, providing us with a reminder of his talent, achievements and legacy.
