Performances

The Runaway Sheep

It’s night-time in the gallery, but the portraits aren’t asleep. They need to find a missing sheep before the people in one painting, The Emigrants, sail to New Zealand.

A Monster in the Gallery

Sometimes there is more to a painting than meets the eye. There is a monster lurking in a portrait, but which one?
