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 reorganised our exhibition plans and, providing the Government Roadmap to unlocking goes smoothly, The Corn Hall gallery will reopen on Monday 18th April at 10am with an exciting programme of artists and work for the remainder of the coming year.

For the time being the gallery spaces will open on the slightly reduced hours of Monday – Saturday 10am-3pm.

We may revert to our usual opening times of Monday – Saturday 10am-4pm in due course. 

We are closed on Sunday and public holidays.

18 April – 15 May

Phil Greenwood: Etching the Landscape

Phil’s exhibition of evocative landscape etchings was due to run for six weeks last spring. Locked down twice, Phil’s show managed 2 weeks in December before we had to close it again. The feedback from those who saw it in that brief run was so positive that he is our reopening show in both the lower and first floor galleries.

With a career stretching back to the ‘70s, Phil’s atmospheric and superbly crafted landscapes have long been favourites with the public and have been regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer show.
