Exhibitions Programme for 2017

The gallery offers regularly changing exhibitions throughout each year, often with specific themes. In addition we run smaller, pop-up exhibitions for a particular artist, medium or subject and these exhibitions are notified to our database. If you want to keep up to date with all the changes, please join our mailing list.


Our first exhibition of the year is an opportunity to meet some new artists in the gallery. We have paintings from Elizabeth Smith PRSMA, Tracey Ross and Paul Bailey together with ceramics from recent graduate Jessica Sian Moulsher and the very experienced Kate Schuricht.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 2nd February and closes on Monday 6th March.


This exhibition focuses on coastal margins and wildlife and will feature new work from painters Brin Edwards SWLA and Kate Batchelor along with new photographs from Rebecca Nason and stunning ceramics from Anna Whitehouse. The exhibition opens on Saturday 11th March and closes on Monday 24th April.


The annual exhibition on the art of the printmaker will once again be a very didactic exhibition, with many forms of printmaking on display. We have new work from Sue Scullard SWE, recently featured on Countryfile as well as work from new printmakers for the gallery – Ann Lewis from North Wales and Kate Batchelor from Suffolk.

The exhibition opens on Friday 28th April and closes on Monday 5th June. There will be a Private View for Friends of the Gallery on Friday 28th April from 5.30pm-7.30pm.
