ART

Throughout the year our main gallery showcases work by both international and emerging artists as well as exhibitions exploring local heritage. The upper gallery regularly delves into work by regional artists and community groups. 

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we have had to postpone our immediate exhibition programme for April and May but will be letting you have a brief taster of the shows digitally and will post the viewing links from the website. We hope you will enjoy them.

When we are clearer about the Corn Hall reopening date, we will let you know when you can visit the gallery and see the shows in person.

In normal circumstances the gallery spaces are open Monday – Saturday 10am-4pm. Times may be subject to change on public holidays.

Phil Greenwood: Etching the Landscape

Digital taster throughout May – actual exhibition dates to be advised

Phil Greenwood has been a professional printmaker since 1971. He has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally: including the Royal Academy, Bankside Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Greenwood depicts landscapes in atmospheric detail, but considerable economy. Using only two or three colours he achieves a great range of tone and colour by overprinting and fusing one colour with another. Working from an amalgamation of ideas recalled, his images do not depict a particular place , yet they look strangely familiar.

Masters at The Corn Hall: David Hockney – Adventures in Print

David Hockney, perhaps the country’s favourite living artist, found fame as much for his prints as his paintings; a naturally gifted draughtsman, Hockney immediately felt in his element when he tried his hand at etching as a student. Our brief survey, which coincides with the National Portrait Gallery’s ‘David Hockney: Drawing from Life’, follows his career from his days as a ‘blonde bombshell’ in the early ‘60s to his current exploration of iPad drawings.

Join curator, David Case, as he discusses Hockney’s work and career.

Hockney (15) film screening Weds 17 June 7.30pm
