Current Exhibitions

In the course of the year we expect to show around 800 artworks in our temporary displays. Our temporary exhibitions also serve another important purpose in helping us to raise funds through the artist donations we make on sales.

The Central Corridor is the showcase exhibition space and provides a continuous display that changes four times a year. The north, south and west corridors display artwork that changes twice a year.

Imagined Worlds is an exhibition now on display in the Central Gallery, The ‘In Xanadu’ Booklet is available for purchase.

If you would like this booklet, you may order it through price £5.00 plus postage and packing. It was created by Justin Shepherd and Terence Sackett to celebrate the first publication of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem, Kubla Khan, in 1816.
