The Sidney Sime Gallery on YouTube

The Sidney Sime Gallery has its own YouTube channel - SidneySimeGallery - and we've uploaded our first video.  It's called


and it was filmed in the Gallery during April 2013. 

The video explores Sime's personal background and his aims, approach and preoccupations as a painter and illustrator, using examples of his work from the Gallery's collection.

Those taking part are Anne Philps, the Gallery's curator, Mary Broughton and Terry Cater from the Trustees, and two outside experts - Geoffrey Beare, chairman of the Imaginative Book Illustration Society, and Tim Dolby, picture restorer and artist, who has restored a number of our paintings.

The video was produced, directed and edited by Alex Hedger, with Joshua Bartolo-Smyth, William Brown and Jonny Byczok as additional crew. The music is by Kevin MacLeod
