Every year a selection of works from the Rugby Collection is presented focussing on a specific theme.

The Rugby Collection holds works by many well-known 20th century and contemporary artists including Stanley Spencer, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, L.S Lowry and AK Dolven.

For 2014 the exhibition will focus on conservation and how the art gallery looks after the art works in its care. Visitors to the 2013 Rugby Collection exhibition were asked what they would like to know about collections care and we will endeavour to answer those questions through a vibrant, informative and interactive display. "Why are some paintings behind glass?" "Does a camera flash damage a picture?" "How long does an oil painting last?" Answers to these questions and many more will be tackled by the art gallery staff.

This year the art gallery is also pleased to present a selection of new art works made in response to pieces in the Rugby Collection by local artists from the Alchemy group.
