We were honoured to be asked to build and install the first show ever in the UK of the work of Yves Saint Laurent at the Bowes Museum in 2015. This spectacular show was designed in conjunction with the Pierre Berg√© Fondacion to showcase the best of the great designer’s masterpieces. We had six technicians on the build for 3 weeks with many of the plinths prefabricated by Ian Watson and Sunghoon Son during this period, and a week of the six of us on site to install the show itself.

We have been helping the Laing rehang some of their galleries in 2013. Some of the gems in their collection graced the walls in this hang, including works by Gaugin, Reynolds, Gainsborough, Holman Hunt, Burne-Jones, Waterhouse and Martin amongst others.

Woodhorn are custodians of part of the famous Burrell Collection of paintings which we hung in the Granary Art Gallery, Berwick upon Tweed in 2012.

The Hatton Gallery have just exhibited some of the Lough works that have lived in their foyer space for years, with some other works of his on loan from public and private collections notably the V&A, National Portrait Gallery, Alnwick Castle, Laing Art Gallery and British Museum. North Exhibition Services assisted The Hatton with the installation of these works according to the specific lifting instruction which come with each unique work. It was a pleasure working with registrars, conservators and technicians from all of these institutions to bring about the reunion of works from his studio many years ago.

We were called in to assist the Bowes team with a rehang of their picture gallery. It was a privilege to hang some very special works and see the restoration of their Gallery space.
