Museum looking for creative works of art inspired by the upcoming Grayson Perry exhibition

Herefordshire Gets Creative

The Grayson Perry exhibition  ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’ is coming to Hereford Museum & Gallery in October 

(Oct 9-Dec 18, 2021)

The exhibition of six large scale tapestries by the Turner-Prize winning artist, Grayson Perry (of recent hit lockdown show Art Club), explore the British fascination with taste and class.

This is your opportunity to take inspiration from Grayson Perry’s exhibition and create your own work of art – a tapestry, textile or collage in any media, with a narrative – although not on the same scale.

We would like to display your works of art in the Museum at the same time as ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’ exhibition, from Oct 9th to December 18th 2021.

We will also create a digital gallery of your works, or of you working on your creations, which we can upload anytime, to be sent to Julia

You have the next 7 months to create something fabulous!

If you would like to submit your work to show in the museum during the exhibition please contact Julia Radburn, by the 4th September 2021

Grayson Perry: The Vanity of Small Differences

Grayson Perry’s The Vanity of Small Differences tells the story of class mobility and the influence social class has on our aesthetic taste. Inspired by William Hogarth’s A Rake’s Progress the six tapestries, measuring 2m x 4m each, chart the ‘class journey’ made by young Tim Rakewell and include many of the characters, incidents and objects Grayson Perry encountered on journeys through Sunderland, Tunbridge Wells and The Cotswolds for the television series ‘All in the Best Possible Taste with Grayson Perry’.


Arts Council Collection, Southbank Centre, London and British Council. Gift of the artist and Victoria Miro Gallery with the support of Channel 4 Television, the Art Fund and Sfumato Foundation with additional support from Alix Partners.
