York Art Gallery is preparing to reopen – and one of its first exhibitions of the summer will be chosen by you.

Along with the Castle Museum, the gallery will reopen on Saturday, 1 August, aka Yorkshire Day.

And in anticipation, the gallery is inviting you to choose the paintings you love and have missed the most – and you can vote on this page!

From Barbara Hepworth to Albert Moore, Paul Nash to Bridget Riley, Your Art Gallery – Paintings Chosen by You will showcase a selection of works from the gallery’s rich collection of paintings, voted for by the public, alongside further works chosen through Twitter polls. 

Scroll down and click on the paintings you like most. You can choose as many as you want.

Alternatively you can go to the York Museums Trust website and vote there, and even add your own label.

The online vote will involve 20 of the most famous and popular works from the gallery’s permanent collection – none of which were on display prior to lockdown – from L.S. Lowry to David Hockney. The 10 most popular will feature in the show

Dr Beatrice Bertram, senior curator, said: “We are really excited to be reopening our galleries and welcoming people back to come and see the wonderful art in our collections.

“We thought what better way to reopen than by giving our audiences the opportunity to choose the paintings they want to see.

You’ve got until Friday (24 July) to vote. Then we’ll pass on our poll to York Museums Trust.

The exhibition will then open on 20 August.
