Each month a member of our community is invited to browse our online collection and select six of their favourite artworks. Each ‘My Choice’ selection, together with personal responses to the works, will be available to view on the Sarjeant Gallery website for one month at a time. The February 2020 My Choice has been selected by Phil Stokes and is available to view until 29th February 2020.
