Forger 'fooled art galleries for 10 years'

Letter: Ceramic collection

Sir: The Tate shares your correspondents' concerns (letters, 15, 17 September) about the future of the Janet Leach Collection of ceramics, principally by Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada. Leach was a powerful force in St Ives, which is why we have been delighted to show a group of his works as part of our displays at the Tate Gallery there.

ART: PRIVATE VIEW: Susan Derges Newlyn Art Gallery

Susan Derges's "River Taw" photograms present the natural world as you've never seen it before - a view from the riverbed looking up - tracking the water's currents and flow and capturing the way that the river looks from the inside out, according to changes in weather and the phases of the moon.

AN AFTERNOON IN ... ABERDEEN ART GALLERY

Aberdeen Art Gallery (left), unlikely as it may seem to the London- centric South, has one of the best collections of 20th-century British art in the country. This is due to the happy combination of well-structured bequests and brilliant curators who have consistently bought the best work new, when prices were still within their reach. They bought Augustus John in the 1920s, Wood and Wadsworth in the 1930s, Ravilious and Sutherland in the 1940s, and a Francis Bacon as early as 1956. It's a terrific collection, of which the city should be extremely proud, but the powers that be have recently cut the gallery's purchase grant by 97 per cent, effectively crippling any further development. So much for living in enlightened times.

The Independent recommends: Visual Art

VIEWS OF LONDON AND SHEFFIELD is a tale of two cities seen through the eyes of 20th-century British artists in the collection of Sheffield's excellent Graves Art Gallery. Not, on the face of it, a very inspiring theme for a show, but there are some fine works by Harold Gilman, Stanley Spencer (right), Prunella Clough and Paul Maitland.

Outakes: Damien Whitmore on a new direction for advertising at the Tate Gallery

`We are opening a new Tate Gallery of Modern Art at Bankside, and relaunching the Tate Gallery of British Art at Millbank, so we need to double our audience by the year 2000. Advertising plays a key role in attracting new audiences. But we felt that our usual advertising - just an image and a name, which is what most art galleries use - wasn't enough to attract them.

Art world split over the Burrell legacy

The director of Glasgow Museums is arguing before a Parliamentary Commission that the city's famous Burrell Collection should no longer be tied to its donor's dying wishes. David Lister, Arts News Editor, says there will be a dramatic twist at the hearing tomorrow which carries enormous implications for many other top art collections.

Outtakes: Storm Thorgerson, designer, on Pink Floyd's 'Back catalogue'.

The design for this picture has various Pink Floyd album covers painted on the backs of a row of young women. It came about when we were commissioned to advertise the back catalogue of Pink Floyd in 1996. There's an incredible sense of humour in the Floyd camp, and they decided that the back catalogue should be literally "the catalogue on the backs".
