A retrospective exhibition celebrating the work of Sally Scott; painter, printmaker and architectural glass engraver. 

Sally studied painting at the Royal Academy Schools.  The downstairs gallery will showcase work created over 6 decades, including paintings and designs for films from the 1960s to the 1980s, in particular The Bliss of Mrs Blossom and The French Lieutenant's Woman. Also on show is some of Sally's prolific output of oil paintings, pastels and prints; some items are for sale.

In the 1970s Sally began to experiment with sandblasting and painting on metal, this led her into glass work. Some of these pivotal works are also on show.

The upstairs gallery will focus on Sally's architectural glass, which can be seen in over 50 sites around the UK, including 5 Cathedrals; Ripon, Leicester, St Albans, Llandaff, Norwich and the west doors of Westminster Abbey. The 'Jacob's Ladder' screen she produced for Leeds Minster in 1989 is 9 metres high, and at the time was the biggest piece of engraved glass commissioned in the UK since Coventry Cathedral in 1960s. Here the work will be displayed through film, full scale drawings, photographs and samples. Sally is a fellow of the Guild of Glass engravers.
