'TECHNICAL issues' have temporarily closed an exhibition of works from world-famous artist Grayson Perry in Hereford.

A Herefordshire Council spokesperson said the Grayson Perry exhibition has had to temporarily close due to technical issues.

"We apologise for any disappointment. We are working to resolve the issue and will keep you updated," they said. 

"Hereford Library and Museum remain open."

The nature of the 'technical issue' was not confirmed.

Featuring six tapestries, the Vanity of Small Differences exhibition opened at Hereford Museum and Art Gallery, on Broad Street, on Saturday, October 9 and runs until Saturday, December 18.

The Hereford event follows in the footsteps of successful exhibitions in London and in galleries throughout the world. The tapestries are full of images and stories of class, identity and taste.

A multi-award-winning artist, Grayson Perry has featured in a number of television programmes on the BBC and Channel 4, including Grayson’s Art Club, which aired during the Covid lockdown. His books include Portrait of the Artist as a Young Girl and The Descent of Man.

Artwork by local people also features as part of the wider exhibition, with work submitted by members of the public and Hereford College of Arts students.
