Gallery Lingard have curated exhibitions of architectural drawings and paintings at The Fine Art Society, London; The Building Centre, London; The Royal Exchange, Manchester; at London Art Fairs as well as their own galleries in Pall Mall and Chelsea.
The curators undertake extensive historical research in order to prepare each architectural exhibit for presentation and sale.
Many architectural drawings from our exhibitions are now kept in international and national museum collections where their research potential can be accessed by scholars and the public with an interest in this field. Private collectors of architectural drawings also continue to add to their collections from our carefully researched exhibitions.
Copies of exhibition catalogues are available through our website.

BRADSHAW GASS & HOPE
The Story of an Architectural Practice 1862-1960 - the first one hundred years
A special exhibition of architectural drawings, prints, photographs, documents and many other records preserved in the archive of Bradshaw Gass & Hope, a still flourishing North-West of England partnership. Exhibits were carefully selected and curated by Jane and Timothy Lingard from this extensive archive in order to document their first one hundred years of architectural practice between 1862-1960.
This Gallery Lingard loan exhibition was held in two venues; the first in London and the second in Manchester.
A display of over sixty drawings opened at The Fine Art Society on New Bond Street, London with a Private View evening event and the occasion marked the launch of Gallery Lingard publication entitled ‘Bradshaw Gass & Hope: The Story of an Architectural Practice 1862-1960 - the first one hundred years’.
The exhibition then travelled to The Royal Exchange in Manchester (a handsome Bradshaw Gass & Hope building of 1914-21), where a second Private View evening opened an extended display of over seventy-five architectural drawings.
The book researched and written by the Directors of Gallery Lingard about the Bradshaw Gass & Hope practice proved to be a popular purchase for the many visitors who came to enjoy the archive drawings and records on view to the public for the first time.
