THE celebrated Painting Pop exhibition in Kendal draws to a close on Saturday October 7, with items from the display still available to purchase.

Abbot Hall Art Gallery's hugely successful summer showcase celebrates 1960s British Pop Art.

Visitors have been inspired by the stunning set of paintings by the iconic artists including Sir Peter Blake, David Hockney, Richard Hamilton and Pauline Boty.

This must-see exhibition has been a huge hit with visitors since opening in mid-July, with more than 1,000 comments left on a memory wall of the 1960s in the gallery.

Helen Watson, director of programming at Lakeland Arts, said: “Painting Pop has been a great success for Abbot Hall. Bringing together these outstanding paintings has awoken memories of the sixties era for our visitors.

"It's the last chance to see these stunning works and relive this life changing time period."

Part of the exhibition includes a specially recreated 1960s living room and items from this treasure trove of nostalgia are up for sale.

Visitors can snap up everything from the room’s cocktail cabinet to a set of Babycham glasses to the actual armchair from the show.

In total 20 items are up for grabs - giving people the opportunity to own a vintage piece of furniture from Abbot Hall’s popular exhibition.

Helen added: "We developed the 1960s style living room as part of the exhibition for visitors to immerse themselves in the swinging 60s. We thought we’d give people the opportunity to take their experience a step further by actually owning an item from the 1960s living room.”

Visitors must leave their order with the gallery’s front desk - and it will be made available once the exhibition closes on Saturday 7.

Painting Pop includes work by Sir Peter Blake, Pauline Boty, Patrick Caulfield, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney and Allen Jones borrowed from major collections such as Tate, National Portrait Gallery and Government Art Collection.

The exhibition is a colourful and striking celebration of British Pop painting. It focuses on the period around 1962, a pivotal year for Pop Art in Britain.

Abbot Hall art gallery is open Monday to Saturday, from 10.30am to 5pm.
